Royal jewels featuring thousands of diamonds will go on show at Buckingham Palace from Saturday as part of celebrations to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. Among them will be the Diamond Diadem, made for the coronation of George IV in 1821, which has been worn by the Queen to and from the State Opening of Parliament since the beginning of her reign.
