The Coronation of the Queen

The crowning of a Queen Consort was last seen at the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth, later The Queen Mother, in 1937. It is usual for the Queen consort to be crowned with the Sovereign at the same ceremony. The Queen consort receives some of the same regalia as her husband including a ring and two sceptres. As the first Queen Consort to participate in the Coronation Ceremony since the Restoration of the monarchy, Mary of Modena required a set of regalia, which was supplied by the Royal goldsmith in 1685. Many of these items are still used today, but in recent times, a new or different crown has been used.
