What is the Queen's Coronation Chair and what is purpose?

Answer:

The Queen's coronation chair is the one she sits on when she's being crowned. It is presently at Westminster Abbey in London. It is so plain looking and old. There's even carved graffiti on it. It looks nothing like the photographs we see of it in tourist brochures or encyclopedias. Underneath it is the Stone of Scone which belongs to Scotland. The English just borrow it from them now that the Scottish have won autonomy. It's amazing that great kings and queens have been crowned with such pomp and circumstance on such a humble-looking chair.
