The Gold Staff Officer were selected by the Duke of Norfolk as the hereditary Earl Marshals of England to oversee seating of large numbers of guests at British coronations. Since at least the coronation of George III in 1761, the Earl Marshal has employed Gold Staff Officers to assist, each being equipped with a ceremonial baton.
