A sampler for the Charles III Coronation which is on May 6th 2023 at Westminster Abbey.
Charles came to the throne of the UK and Commonwealth after the death of his mother Queen Elizabeth II on 8th September 2022. The Queen reigned for 70 years, so at the age of 73, Charles is the oldest monarch to inherit the throne. His wife Camilla will be Queen.
If you are interested in the succession of the Royal House of Windsor, there is a sampler dedicated to this tree.
This sampler is based on the beautiful St Edward crown which is used for Coronations. It was also featured in the three Jubilee samplers for Queen Elizabeth II, and completes the set of four.
17 colours are used and blended to create a vibrant piece.
The gemstones sparkle with a subtly glistening thread.
It will be easy to obtain a frame for the stitched sampler because it fits a standard 8″ x 10″ frame.
This sampler contains threads that are not available commercially, and so it is not available as a chart.
