On 20 February 1547, the 9 year old son of Henry VIII rode out from the Tower in a grand procession. Cheering crowds lined the route to Westminster Abbey where he was crowned Edward VI.

Young Edward VI was following a tradition which lasted from at least the 14th to the 17th centuries. Monarchs stayed at the fortress before emerging on the morning of the ceremony, to be escorted to Westminster with great pageantry. The Tower was the royal stronghold in the City symbolising the continuity of the English monarchy — a fitting place to begin the ritual of crowning the new king.

Le 20 février 1547, le fils du roi Frenri VIII, alors àgé de 9 ans, sortit de la Tour à cheval, accompaggé d'un somptueux cortège. Une foule en liesse l'acclama tout au long de son trajet jusqu'à l'abbaye de Westminster, où le Jeune ponce fut couronné roi, devenant ainsi Édouard VI.
