London: Westminster Abbey - Coronation Theatre Front Text: "The 'theatre' of the Coronation. - In the immediate foreground is the raised dais on which the Royal Throne is placed. The Queen's Throne is seen on the left, standing somewhat lower. Here take place the ceremonies in inthronization and homage after the formal anointing and crowning have taken place in St. Edward's Chair, which is seen further off within the Presbytery, with an accompanying chair for the Queen. At the end of the Presbytery stands the Altar at which the Sovereign makes his oblations and takes the oath."
