Queen Mary's Crown

Link to the Royal Collection

My favourite pic of the crown of Queen Mary, consort of George V, is shown second below. The arches are so elegant and support the orb as though it is floating above them. It was made for Queen Mary’s coronation on 22 June 1911. 

Queen Mary wore it without the arches to the coronation of her son George VI on 12 May 1937. I think it is unlikely to be used for the 2023 coronation. [Edit: When I wrote that it never occurred to me that anyone would consider making any changes to the design of this beautiful crown.]
