That extraordinary service that was put together by Anthony Armstrong-Jones with that preposterous crown and whatever."The question will be, do we want an investiture? It's a unique situation that we've got an old King and a fully adult heir who has not been created Prince of Wales."He continued: "What we could be confronted with is a coronation and an investiture.
