In examining the detailed planning and operation of an example of long-distance royal travel in the early modern period, this paper draws on contemporary documentary evidence to reconstruct the arrangements that were made for the Princess Elizabeth of England, and her new husband, Prince Frederick, the Elector Palatine, in their journey from London to Heidelberg between April and June in 1613. The progress of the royal couple is well known for its lavishness, splendour, symbolism and political significance but, in this analysis, attention is paid to the composition and character of the escort party, and the elaborate and intricate choreography that underpinned early seventeenth century European travel en fête.
