Re: Queen Camilla's Crown
What i wonder is how the crown will displayed in future once it return into the jewel House at the Tower. Will it remain with four arches and the cullinans in place or will the add the other 4 arches again and remove the Cullinans and replace them with the Crystals.
I knew I wouldn't like the removal of 4 of the half arches, the crown was designed for 8 and so they were thin and delicate. Removing half of them leaves the crown looking empty! Keeping all the arches or using Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother's crown and replacing the Koh-i-Noor diamond with a Cullinan diamond were always the better options!
Here are some photos showing the Cullinan V brooch and the Cullinan III & IV diamonds.
