The day of the official coronation of King Carlos III is closer than ever and with it will also be the coronation of Camilla Parker as Queen of the United Kingdom. Given this, the new monarch is finalizing the details of the appearance he will wear on what is perhaps the most important day of his life. However, the jewelry he will wear on May 6 has already been debated among the population.
The reputation of Camilla Parker in the British royal family is the subject of discussion around the world. His past continues to do a lot of damage to his present and future, so even though he tried to clean up his image as “the usurper”, the public continues to feel a certain rejection towards him.
However, she is the wife of the king, so she will also be the queen and the people of the United Kingdom have to deal with her. In this way, curiosity also arose about what Camilla will do on May 6, when she and her husband are finally proclaimed as the kings of the country.
Buckingham Palace has revealed some of the jewelery Camilla Parker will wear on coronation day. The tiara, ring and some other jewels were revealed, so many of the public already discovered what the queen consort will wear that day.
Camila chose the same crown that Queen Maria von Teck wore; With this, he will be the first queen consort to use the crown of another already worn, instead of having it made only for him. However, it was revealed that some “minor” changes were made to “reflect Camilla’s individual style” and “pay homage” to the late Queen Elizabeth II. The monarchy also assured that the decision was taken “for the sake of sustainability and efficiency.”
The tiara that Camila will wear has 2,200 diamonds, two stones from the great Cullinan diamond: a 94.4-carat pear-shaped drop and a 63.6-carat square-cut stone. These jewels are really heavy, so it is said that their weight is close to a kilogram.
In front of the altar, seated on a throne next to King Carlos III, Camilla will receive both batons, just like her husband. In his case, they will be what they did for the Italian and Catholic queen Maria of Modena in 1685, who was crowned consort of King James II.
One of them has a cross as a symbol of temporal power; the other is made of three pieces of ivory. You will also receive your ring, a jewel made for Queen Adelaide, wife of William IV, and set with a large ruby.
Given these revelations, the jewelry that Camilla Parker will wear does not stop generating controversy, because a large part of the sector considers that she “does not deserve them”, because she already loved King Carlos III, before they were married. .
