‘See, your king is coming,
seated on a donkey’s colt.’
In 1483, Richard III was crowned in Westminster Abbey. There were heralds, musicians, singers, priests, abbots, bishops, peers and the Duke of Norfolk bearing the great crown of St Edward with its magnificent gems, gold, and purple velvet, all preceding Richard in a glorious procession through the streets of London. Two years later and Richard was dead, killed at the Battle of Bosworth.
Our King made his triumphal procession through the streets of Jerusalem, riding only on a colt, but our King lives forever, all supreme, almighty and all glorious.
