Before SHAKSPERians correct me ...   religious processions were of course 
brought back for the reign of Queen Mary, but were banned again in the 
Injunctions of July 1559.

William Herbert, Earl Pembroke, to whom many think the sonnets were 
addressed, played a significant part in the ceremony of the coronation of 
James I. Although he carried the Sword of State, the writer of the sonnet 
may have assumed he carried the canopy as did the other earls in rotation.
