The choirboys at Westminster Abbey on Saturday will be hoping to be treated rather better than their predecessors at Queen Elizabeth’s crowning in 1953, says Patrick Kidd in The Times. “Their packed lunches included bottles of milk, which they were told to keep when empty in case they needed to spend a penny during the long service.”

They were only allowed to spend a penny while the choir was singing.

Otherwise, the tinkling of the coins would be audible. :)
