One query has drawn the greatest interest: will Queen Consort Camilla wear the Kohinoor? An international uproar might result from Camilla wearing the divisive crown, according to a media outlet.

Kohinoor is not expected to be present during the event, experts told a media outlet.

The Kohinoor remained with Queen Elizabeth II until her passing, and as Camilla is now the Queen Consort, it has been given to her.

The Queen Mother wore the disputed crown during her 1937 coronation alongside her husband King George VI.

The Kohinoor, which is frequently referred to be the world’s most valuable diamond, measures about 105.6 carats. The diamond was discovered in 14th-century India. According to the diamond’s history, it was discovered near Guntur, Andhra Pradesh, during the Kaaktiya Dynasty’s rule.

In a Hindu temple in Warangal, it served as one of the deity’s eyes before being looted by Malik Kafoor, Alauddin Khilji’s general. After being handed down to several Mughal Empire emperors, Sikh Maharaja Ranjit Singh acquired it at Lahore, from where he later travelled to Punjab.

Following the acquisition of Punjab under Maharaja Ranjit Singh’s son Dileep Singh’s control, the diamond was delivered to Queen Victoria in 1849.

The public can view the Kohinoor diamond, which is now mounted on the Queen’s crown and kept at the Tower of London’s Jewel House.
