This post is from a few years ago but as it has some interesting information about the horses and the Coronation Coach I thought it would be of interest before the Coronation of King Charles tomorrow
I think that literally millions of people around the world will soon know the Windsor Greys. They will pull the gold coach for the Coronation of King Charles.I wrote this post some time ago and have edited a few bits and I am postng it again in honor of the Coronation of King Charles tomorrow. A few years ago I visited the Royal Mews at Buckingham Palace. The greys usually only transport the King himself .On the day of my visit there were two of the greys there for visitors to see.
Luckily for me one of the grooms was there to take one of the greys out to be ridden. He told me that the greys are Irish Draught breeding and the one he was taking out had an important job coming up later in June: pulling a carriage to transport the Queen at Royal Ascot.
