The Investiture Ceremony

Written by Communications

June 08, 2024

The Lieutenancy of England & Wales holds Investiture ceremonies in June and November each year.

The ceremony takes place over two days. The Investiture ceremony takes place on the second morning, following the Vigil service the preceding night.

This video is based on the Investiture in Rome during December 2023 for the Lieutenancy for Central Italy.

It explains how a standard Investiture ceremony takes place.

Although some aspects will be slightly different within our own Lieutenancy, it gives a good understanding of practicalities and symbolism of this most important ceremony.
