From Curiosities of Popular Customs: “In memory of the Magi’s offerings, it is even to this day the custom for the British sovereign to make gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh in the Chapel Royal, St James. For many centuries this was done by the sovereign himself. George III., however, was the last king who appeared in person. Now the offerings are prosented by two officers of the Lord Chamberlain, attended by the Yeomen of the Guard, while the offertory sentences are being read; the representatives of royalty bring up three purses and lay them on the alms-dish held by the celebrant, who presents them on the altar.” http://yeomenoftheguard.com/epiphany.htm; http://www.westminster-abbey.org/worship/sermons/2010/january/sermon-given-at-the-epiphany-sung-eucharist-wednesday-6-january-2010
