King Charles and Queen Camilla have been presented with the Coronation Roll.

The Coronation Roll is the official record of their coronation and was presented to them by the Clerk of the Crown in Chancery at Buckingham Palace.

The Coronation Rolls have been drawn up since the original Coronation Roll of King Edward II and Queen Isabella in 1308. Unfortunately, there are no Rolls in existence for Edward III, Henry VI, Edward IV, Richard III, Henry VII, Henry VIII, Edward VI, Mary I, Elizabeth I and Charles I. The others are held at the National Archives.

The King and Queen met with Timothy Noad, the heraldic artist, and Stephanie Gill, the calligrapher, to learn more about their role in creating the Roll.

A digital Roll will also be made available to members of the public for the first time.
