2023: The Dukes of Richmond and The Coronation Exhibition
Coronation year means Goodwood House is playing host to an exhibition celebrating the central involvement of the Dukes of Richmond in past coronations. The Dukes of Richmond have undertaken a key role in almost every coronation since 1702, mostly as bearers of the Sceptre with the Dove. This important crown jewel is presented to the monarch just before the moment of crowning.
This exhibition brings together splendid coronation and garter robes, coronets, a page boy’s outfit, Queen Victoria’s glove and many more terrific treasures to recreate just what it was like to be involved in a coronation! The exhibition can be viewed by purchasing a Tea & Tour or Tour Only.
