Wonderful Weekends (1983 State Portraits of Queen Elizabeth of Britania)

With two weeks till the 4th of July Imperial Coronation, this blog and indeed the whole of Europa have been busy and extremely preoccupied. We haven't posted much except the bare essentials and expect it to remain so until the wave of coronation posts hit. We have decided due to the scale of the coronation to post three posts on coronation day. Back to today's Wonderful Weekends.

We have had many old photos reappear since the restoration of the Scotney and Britanian monarchies. Most of these have been of the iconic Empress Crystobel as the last and most influential ruler of the former Empire and Kingdom of Scotney. However, this week, restoration work at the Aldarian Palace's interior have revealed extremely rare photos of the last Queen Consort of Britania. All photographic records of the new Emperor's grandmother was thought to have been lost to history due to the 1996 Revolution's destruction. However some old boxes revealed these negatives of photos taken of the Queen. We present with great joy the old State Portrait photos of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, Queen Consort of Britania. 

The set of photos show Her Late Majesty wearing the Nizam Ruby Demi Parure with a tiara that looks exactly like one found last year in the Reichenthal Vault. The Reichenthal Vault tiara had no records and was thought to be a historical anomaly until now. Further investigation is now underway with the possibility of the tiara then returning to the Imperial Crown Collection.

These beautiful photos are a truly historical find that has just added impetus to the build up to the coronation in July.

One other photo was also discovered, that of Empress Crystobel's husband, Emperor Christian of the United Empire of Scot-Britania. It is one of only a few photos in existence of the first Emperor. The new Emperor Christian-Victor was very happy to receive the news of the discovery of his father's photo.

  1. I absolutely love the rubies. The red and white ensemble is magnificent and suits Queen Elizabeth very well. Emperor Christian seems very at home in his regal surrounds. It's great that the photos were handed to Emperor Christian Victor - I'm sure he appreciates the sentiment as it is a reflection on days gone by.
