THE CORONATION OF THE QUEEN CONSORT.

[Taken from The Form and Order of the Service that is to be Performed and of the Ceremonies that are to be Observed, in the Coronation of Their Majesties, King George II. and Queen Caroline, in the Abby Church of S. Peter, Westminster, on Wednesday the rith of October, 1727.

London, Printed by John Baskett, 1727. p. 64.]

SECT. XVIII.*

The Queen's Coronation.

The Queen having reposed Her Self in Her Chair on the South-side of the Altar, while the King was Crowned and Inthronized, as soon as the Anthem is ended, ariseth and goeth to the Steps of the Altar, supported by two Bishops, and there kneeleth down, whilst the Archbishop saith the following Prayer :

Almighty and everlasting God, the fountain of all goodness ; Give ear, we beseech thee, to our prayers, and multiply thy blessings upon this thy Servant, whom in thy Name, with all humble devotion, we consecrate our Queen : 'Defend her now and ever with thy mighty hand, and with thy favour protect her as with a shield; Enable her to overcome and triumph over all her enemies ghostly and bodily; Make her a great Example of Virtue and Piety in the present age, and continue her Royal Issue for a lasting Blessing to these Kingdoms in all succeeding ages and generations,' through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee, O Father, in the Unity of the Holy Spirit, world without end. Amen.

* This coronation of the Queen of George II. has been collated generally with those of George III. and William IV. under the symbols respectively of Geo. III. and Wm. IV.

12Defend her evermore from all Dangers, ghostly and bodily; Make her a great example of Virtue and Piety in the present age, and grant her a numerous Royal Issue for a lasting Blessing to these Kingdoms in all succeeding generations.

Geo. III. Defend her evermore from all Dangers, ghostly and bodily; Make her a great Example of Virtue and Piety, and a Blessing to this Kingdom.

Wm. IV.

(The Anointing : in m.]

This Prayer being ended, the Queen ariseth, and cometh to the place of Her Anointing: Which is to be at a Faldstool set for that purpose before the Altar, between the Steps and King Edward's Chair. And standing there, the greatest Lady that attends Her, takes off Her Circle of Gold, and She Kneeleth down, and four Peeresses appointed for that Service, holding a rich Pall of Silk, or Cloath of Gold, over Her, the Archbishop poureth the Holy Oil upon the Crown of Her Head, saying these Words:

In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost : Let the anointing with this Oil increase your honour, and the grace of God's Holy Spirit establish you, for ever and ever. Amen.

Then the chief Lady assistant openeth Her Apparel, for the Anointing Her on the Breast; which the Archbishop also performeth, using the same Words :

LET the anointing with this Oil increase your honour, and the grace of God's Holy Spirit establish you, for ever and ever. Amen."

After the Anointing the Archbishop saith this Prayer :

O most merciful ?and gracious Lord God, we beseech thee of thine abundant goodness to pour out the Spirit of thy grace and blessing upon this thy Servant Queen CAROLINE, that as by our Office and Ministry she is this day anointed, and solemnly consecrated our Queen; so being sanctified by thy Holy Spirit, she may continue thy faithful and devout Servant unto her lifes end, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Then the same Lady closeth the Queen's Robe at the Breast (having first dried the place anointed) and afterwards putteth a linen Coif upon Her Head, because of the Anointing 3

(The Ring: in m.]

Then the Archbishop receiveth from the Master of the Jewel-Office the Queen's Ring, and putteth it upon the fourth finger of Her right hand, saying,

Receive this Ring, the seal of a sincere Faith ; and God, to whom belongeth all Power and Dignity, bless and prosper you in this your honour, that you may therein long continue, fearing him always, and always doing such things as shall please him, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
