The Anointing Ceremony during the Coronation of King George VI, which precedes the crowning. Illustration shows King George VI having taking his Robe with its Cape of ermine off, wearing a satin under-robe reaching to the knees and sat in the Coronation Chair (with the ancient stone of Scone), under a canopy of gold and silver brocade held over him by four Peers who are Knights of the Garter. The Archbishop of Canterbury, having dipped his fingers in Holy Oil, anoints the King and makes the sign of the cross on the crown of his head, the breast and the palm of each hand. Date: 1937

The translucent white berries appear from September to January and contain a sticky pulp, which surrounds the seeds.
