RUSI is joining the UK and Commonwealth in celebrating the Coronation of His Majesty The King and Her Majesty the Queen on Saturday 6 May 2023.
We are immensely proud of and grateful for the support the Royal Family have extended to RUSI over the course of more than 150 years. From William IV onwards every British monarch has been the Patron of the Institute. Our home on 61 Whitehall has witnessed the procession of the 20th century coronations and will now overlook the procession of King Charles III as His Majesty The King and Her Majesty the Queen journey to Westminster Abbey.
A selection of images from the RUSI archives shows earlier coronations of Edward VII in 1902 and Elizabeth II in 1953.
