Jewel Detective: Royal Opera Night (1953)



Indulge your inner magpies with this short film clip, which shows royals attending the premiere of the opera Gloriana at Covent Garden ahead of Queen Elizabeth II's coronation in 1953. There are tons of royals in tiaras and jewels shown -- see if you can identify some of the pieces on display. (And pay attention at the 9 second mark -- see if you see what I think I see!)
