They passed by the mistake of those who led the Proceeding, from the Court of Requests through the Court of Wards, they should have gone downe the stairs into the Hall, which occasioned some disorder, and a long stay, to give the Peers, and Peeresses tyme to Passe by the Throne downe into the Hall. There was a Throne placed at the upper end of Westminster Hall

, and a state set up for the King and Queene withe two Chaires, cushions, and footstooles, and a long Table covered with a rich Carpet.

Their Maiestyes repaired to their two Chayres, and seated themselves there under the State.

Some of the great Officers placed themselves on their Mats, right and left hands, the Lord Great Chamberlain and the Lord High Constable stood on the outsyde of the Table opposite to the King and Queene.

Then the Master of the Jewell House with the Regalia in his custodye brought by the Officers of the said Jewell House repaired to the Throne.

First he there presented the Sword of State, in a rich scabberd with gyrdle and hangers to the Lord High Constable the Duke of Ormond, who delivered it to the Lord Great Chamberlain, by whom it was layde upon the Table.

The next was the sword coñonly called Curtana, which was in like manner delivered to the Lord Great Chamberlain, who having drawne it out of the scabbard, layde it upon the Table.

The pointed sword was layde on the Table after the same manner. And so was the pointless sword.

The Master of the Jewell House did also present to the Lord Great Chamberlain the gold spirrs.
