Officers of Arms in Westminster Hall

Officers of the College of Arms and the Lyon Court can be distinguished by their different tabards, the tabards of the Scottish Officers being those of the Royal Arms used in Scotland. The Kings of Arms are wearing their Crowns which were donned the moment St. Edward's Crown was placed upon The King's head by the Archbishop of Canterbury. The Coronation is the only occasion when the Kings of Arms wear their Crowns of office and when Officers wear white breeches instead of the usual black.
