Queen Camilla of Great Britain will wear Queen Mary’s crown at King Charles’ coronation without the Koh-i-Noor diamond.

The Koh-i-Noor will be replaced by Queen Elizabeth II’s Cullinam III, IV and V diamonds in a tribute to the late beloved monarch.

The famed Koh-i-Noor is being removed so that there are no reminders of England’s colonial past at the coronation ceremony. The diamond has, at various times, been claimed by Pakistan, India and Iran. The 105.6 carat diamond was seized by the East India Company from Punjab in 1849.



It was handed over to Queen Victoria and has been part of the crown jewels since then.

It is now at permanent display in the Tower of London where all crown jewels are kept when not in use.
