A 700-year-old chair in London’s Westminster Abbey is undergoing delicate conservation work by a conservator so that King Charles III can use it for his coronation in May.

For centuries, English coronations have featured the historic throne known as the “Coronation Chair” as their focal point, including those of Henry VIII, Charles I, Queen Victoria, and the late Queen Elizabeth II.

The chair is described as “one of the most precious and famous pieces of furniture in the world” and is in “amazing condition” given its age, according to Westminster Abbey, where the event will take place.
