Buckingham Palace has revealed that Queen Camilla will wear Queen Elizabeth II’s Robe of State.

Queen Elizabeth II  wore the Robe of State for her own coronation in 1953. The Robe is made of crimson velvet and has been conserved by robemakers at Ede and Ravenscroft. Some minor adjustments have been made for Queen Camilla. The Robe of State is worn on arrival at Westminster Abbey.

Upon departure, Queen Camilla will change into a Robe of Estate. This has been made new for her by the Royal School of Needlework and Ede and Ravenscroft. The train has themes of nature and environment to portray the King and Queen’s shared love of nature. It was made of a rich purple velvet to match King Charles’s Robe of Estate. It will feature insects such as bees, flowers, and Camilla’s cypher.

The Lily of the Valley pays tribute to Queen Elizabeth II, as it was one of her favourites.
