Buckingham Palace has released several images of the coronation robes to be worn by King Charles III and Queen Camilla next week.

Queen Camilla will arrive at Westminster Abbey in the Robe of State, which was also used by Queen Elizabeth II for her 1953 coronation. This robe is made of crimson velvet and has been conserved by Ede and Ravenscroft. It has undergone some minor adjustments for the Queen. At the end of the ceremony, Queen Camilla will change into a Robe of Estate, which is made of purple silk velvet.

Queen Camilla’s Robe of Estate will be new, and it has been embroidered in gold by the Royal School of Needlework. The design features flowers and insects to reflect Charles and Camilla’s shared loved of nature. A tribute to Queen Elizabeth II has also been included. One of the flowers is Lily of valley, which was one of her favourites.

King Charles’s Robe of State is also made of crimson velvet and is the very same one worn by his grandfather, King George VI, at his 1937 coronation. His Robe of Estate, of purple silk velvet, was also used by his grandfather.
