Queen Camilla’s Coronation Crown Has a Controversial History Behind It

King Charles III’s great-grandmother Queen Mary was the wife of King George VI. Born Princess Victoria Mary of Teck, she married the then Prince George in 1893, before reigning alongside her husband from 1910 until his death in 1936.

Mary has returned to public consciousness of late following confirmation from Buckingham Palace back in February that Queen Camilla would wear her predecessor’s crown when crowned alongside her husband at their coronation.

An announcement from the palace on February 14 revealed, “Queen Mary’s Crown has been removed from display at the Tower of London for modification work ahead of the Coronation of His Majesty The King and Her Majesty The Queen Consort on Saturday, May 6, 2023. Queen Mary’s Crown will be used for the Coronation of The Queen Consort at Westminster Abbey.”
