Re: Queen Mary "coronation portraits"
Small correction to your Queen Mary crown description Bryce.
For the 1911 coronation Cullinan I was placed in the Sovereign's scepter, and Cullinan II in the Imperial State Crown.
Queen Mary's crown had Cullinan IV placed at the front of the band, Koh-i-Nûr diamond at the front cross, and Cullinan III placed on cross at the top of the diamond monde. https://www.rct.uk/collection/31704/queen-marys-crown
