The Imperial State Crown
Seventy years may have passed since Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation, but the Imperial State Crown appears amazingly untouched. These side-by-side photos show Queen Elizabeth II and King Charles III wearing the Imperial State Crown during their coronations, and it’s stunning to see how well they both wear it! There have been many versions of this crown throughout history, but the current version was created in 1937. There were rumors that Queen Elizabeth II was nervous about wearing the crown during her ceremony, so she practiced while walking around and drinking her morning tea beforehand. Perhaps King Charles III did the same? Either way, they both look impressive and regal in their photos!
