In the 'banquets' section we have the following sentence:

"A banquet was considered in 1902 for Edward VII but his sudden illness put a stop to the plans."

It is somewhat contradicted by the Royal Collection on their website:

"The Coronation Banquet of August 1902 comprised no fewer than fourteen courses."[1]

Who is right? Also, a state banquet and ball were held at the palace in 1911,[2] and again in 1937.[3] Firebrace (talk) 15:17, 12 July 2016 (UTC)

Presumably it was the June 1902 one that was cancelled. DrKay (talk) 15:39, 12 July 2016 (UTC)
So there was a banquet, it was just delayed. Now I'm trying to figure out which part of "since the 20th century" implies that a flypast happened at every coronation in the 20th century. You could infer it but it isn't implied... Firebrace (talk) 15:52, 12 July 2016 (UTC)
"it has been traditional ... to watch a flypast by the Royal Air Force": since the one occasion it ever happened? One event does not a tradition make. Two can play at being a sarcastic asshole. DrKay (talk) 15:55, 12 July 2016 (UTC)
If it happened last time then it will happen next time. The plans for the next coronation do exist. But I see what you mean... Firebrace (talk) 16:06, 12 July 2016 (UTC)
