Re: Noble attendance will likely be quite limited...

Then it's really not a Royal house anymore then, noble and aristocratic families exist because of a monarch, if their numbers are limited then their is really no point in hanging onto any of the other cultures and traditions. The status of Dukes, Marquess, Earl, Baron and lord were all given by a reigning monarch to pass from the holder to the heir. But if that's what the advisors and wokedom has done well I guess it's the new normal. I was hoping for the real traditional coronation even without the silk stockings but not to have most of the aristocracy on mass not show up is sad.
There have been lots of press reports of many noble families whose ancestors have attended coronations for centuries not receiving an invite as they have no political role anymore and no personal connection with the Royal family.
I suspect we will see the Duchess of Norfolk and Marchioness of Cholmondeley and a few others given the roles their husbands play in the Royal household and maybe some others with personal connections to the Royal family like the Duchess of Devonshire and the Dowager Duchess of Westminster and probably her daughters, certainly her eldest who is married to one of the King's godchildren.
I doubt there will be dozens of noble women though.
