The Robe Royal and Stole

A new Stole was commissioned for this coronation, taking inspiration from the Stole worn by Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. The Stole for the Coronation of His Majesty The King was been newly created and embroidered by the Royal School of Needlework, from a design created by Timothy Noad, Herald Painter at the College of Arms, overseen by Garter King of Arms.

The Robe Royal is worn over the Supertunica and is more similar in design to a robe. The Imperial Mantle being used by His Majesty The King at this year’s Coronation was made for the Coronation of George IV in 1821, and has been worn by King George V, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth II. It is the oldest vestment being used in the Coronation Service.
