Buckingham Palace is conscious that the Kohinoor diamond and its use in King Charles’ coronation ceremony might be very contentious, a royal expert said. Camilla Tominey reflected upon the significance of Queen Consort Camilla choosing to not use the traditional crown which is embedded with the Kohinoor. Earlier, it was confirmed that Queen Mary’s Crown has been chosen by King Charles’ wife Camilla for the ceremony.

“I think the palace were conscious about the Kohinoor perhaps being controversial and therefore have decided that they don’t want there to be a side story about the provenance of these diamonds,” Camilla Tominey said.
