There are a lot of things it would have been handy to know in 2019: Stock up on loo paper. Resist the urge to panic buy rice when the pandemic hits. (You will be eating it for, quite literally, years afterwards.)

(We can thank George III for this tradition of marking the sovereign’s big day with a big military parade.)
