Queen Camilla and King Charles’ coronation has finally arrived and throughout the service they have been assisted by their dedicated Pages of Honor. These eight boys were chosen by the King and Queen, with four there to specifically support each of them individually and appeared on the Buckingham Palace balcony after the service. But whilst plenty of the immediate and extended Royal Family members or European royals might be instantly recognizable some fans might not be aware of who all of the Pages of Honor are.
Here we reveal how they’re connected to the royals, whether they’re royal relatives or children of friends, and who they are as they take on these iconic roles…
Who are the Pages of Honor?
Prince George of Wales
Prince George is the eldest son of the Prince and Princess of Wales and King Charles' eldest grandchild, as well as second in the royal line of succession. At nine years old he is also the youngest of the Pages of Honor and is perhaps the most high-profile as the future King. He has the responsibility of helping to carry his grandfather's ceremonial robes during the service alongside his fellow Pages.
Lord Oliver Cholmondeley
Lord Oliver Cholmondeley is 13 years old and is another one of the King's Pages of Honor. Oliver's father is David, 7th Marquess of Cholmondeley, and his mother is Rose, the Marchioness of Cholmondeley, formerly known before her marriage as Rose Hanbury. Oliver's father was recently appointed Lord-in-Waiting to King Charles and his parents have had close links with the Royal Family for their entire lives.
Oliver is a twin, but his twin brother Alexander was not selected as a Page for the service. According to The Telegraph, it's possible that Oliver was selected instead because it is his brother who will receiving the honor of inheriting the Marquess Cholmondeley title from their father one day.
"It is understood that Lord Cholmondeley was chosen for the coronation role in recognition of the fact that his twin is set to inherit their father's title," they claimed.
Master Nicholas Barclay
Master Nicholas Barclay is also 13 years old and the grandson of the Lord-Lieutenant of Wilshire, Mrs. Sarah Troughton. Sarah is a distant relative of the King through her maternal grandfather who was a brother of the late Queen Mother.
In 2022, Sarah was appointed as one of the "Queen's Companions" and is a close friend of Her Majesty. It is thought that Nicholas's mother is Rose Barclay (née Troughton), who is one of three children of Sarah and her husband, Peter.
Master Ralph Tollemache
Master Ralph Tollemache is 12 years old and the son of The Honorable Edward and Sophie Tollemache. Ralph's father is one of King Charles' godsons and is the heir apparent of the 5th Baron Tollemache, whilst his mother Sophie is the daughter of the broadcaster Iain Johnstone. The couple married in 2007 and King Charles was one of their wedding guests.
Master Gus and Master Louis Lopes
Gus and Louis Lopes are the 13-year-old twin sons of Laura Lopes who is the youngest of Queen Camilla's children and they are understood to be very close with their grandmother who they reportedly call "GaGa". They have largely been kept out of the spotlight growing up by their parents Laura Lopes and her husband, Harry Lopes. The couple married in 2006 and also have a daughter, Eliza who is 15. Gus and Louis are the King's step-grandchildren and also step-cousins with Prince George, who is another Page of Honor.
Master Freddy Parker Bowles
Fredrick Parker Bowles is 12 years old and is another of Queen Camilla's grandchildren. Freddy's father is food writer and critic Tom Parker Bowles, the Queen's only son, and his mother is Sara Buys. He has an older sister named Lola who was born in 2007, though she didn't have an official role at their grandmother and King Charles' big day.
Master Arthur Elliot
Master Arthur Elliot is 11 years old and is Her Majesty's great-nephew. He's the grandson of Queen Camilla's sister Annabel Elliot and is the son of Ben Elliot, a businessman and former co-Chairman of the Conservative Party. His mother is Mary-Clare Winwood, the daughter of musician Steve Winwood. The Elliots are close with Queen Camilla and both the King and Queen attended Ben and Mary-Clare's wedding in 2011.
What is a Page of Honor
A Page of Honor is primarily responsible for carrying the monarch's or consort's train and Robes of State at ceremonial occasions such as coronations, the State Opening of Parliament and the annual Order of the Garter service. The role typically lasts between two to three years and there tend to be four at a time as the weight of the robes mean that multiple hands are needed. For King Charles and Queen Camilla's coronation there are four pages for the monarch and four for the Queen Consort, with all of Queen Camilla's being related to her.
Laura is a news writer for woman&home who primarily covers entertainment and celebrity news. Laura dabbles in lifestyle, royal, beauty, and fashion news, and loves to cover anything and everything to do with television and film. She is also passionate about feminism and equality and loves writing about gender issues and feminist literature.
Laura loves drinking and eating and can often be found trying to get reservations at London's trendiest restaurants. When she's not wining and dining, Laura can also be found travelling, baking, and hiking with her dog.
