Queen Elizabeth Death: Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II died at the age of 96. Whenever the name of Queen Elizabeth, who ruled for 70 years, arises in someone’s mind, the mention of the Queen is definitely seen with the Kohinoor (Koh-i-Noor) diamond. This historic Kohinoor diamond is inlaid on the crown of Queen Elizabeth.
How did the Kohinoor diamond found in India reach Queen Elizabeth and now after her death, to whom will this diamond go? Let’s read…
Actually, the Kohinoor diamond is one of the largest diamonds in the world. In the 14th century, the 105.6-carat Kohinoor diamond was found in India. After the British East India Company’s annexation of Punjab in 1849, the Kohinoor diamond went into the possession of the British, after which it was inscribed on the crown of Queen Victoria. The Kohinoor diamond was embedded in the platinum crown made for Queen Elizabeth during the 1937 coronation of King George VI. This crown is displayed in the Tower of London.
To whom will the diamond go now?
At the same time, now after the death of Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles has been made king and this diamond will now be seen on the head of Charles’s wife Camilla. Charles, 73, said on the passing of Queen Elizabeth, “The passing of my dear mother, Her Majesty the Queen, is a very sad moment for me and all my family members.” Let us tell you, Charles is the oldest person to occupy the British throne.
