Julia’s House shop workers discovered an historic item last week – an original invitation for the Coronation of King William IV and Queen Adelaide at Westminster Abbey in 1831.

“When I first saw it I thought this looks interesting,” said the warehouse worker who found the 186 year old invite whilst sorting through a box of donated bric-a-brac at the charity’s Creekmoor shop. “It was exciting to find as it’s special due to its age and Royal connections.”  

The historical item was listed on the charity’s eBay page and quickly sold for £180 to a Royal memorabilia collector in Nottinghamshire.
