"It was an event with literal sparkle, the jewels glittering under the lights. The splendour of the gathering was overwhelming, a rite written a millennia ago, being acted out before our eyes. The moment came. Stillness. Then the cries rang out, 'God Save the King'. It was a day that we would not soon forget" - Diary of a Glen Shepherd
