Some questions have arisen on what crown he will wear during his reign and at the event next year

What crown will Charles wear?

The Guardian reports that the Archbishop of Canterbury will place St Edward’s crown on Charles's head on the day of his coronation.

This is the iconic solid gold crown from the crown jewels at the Tower of London, which dates from 1661 and is is studded with 444 coloured gemstones, including rubies, garnets, sapphires and tourmalines.

Additionally it has a purple velvet centre, trimmed with fur and weighs 2.23kg.

It is partly that reason why the monarch wears the crown only at the moment of coronation itself.
