The Queen’s Crown

While we won’t see Queen Mary being crowned with the Queen’s Crown, it was used for the Queen’s coronation for over 100 years.

This crown was made in 1731 for Queen Sophie Magdalene (born of Brandenburg-Kulmbach) as she refused to wear the crown of her predecessor, Anna Sophie Reventlow, whom she hated.

The crown was made by the court jeweller Frederik Fabritius, and the stones are believed to have come from the crown of Queen Sophie Amalia (born of Brunswick-Calenberg).

It was last used for the coronation of Queen Caroline Amalie (born of Augustenburg) in 1840.
