Britain to showcase Kohinoor as 'symbol of conquest' | Head in the sand over 'colonial war loot'?

The controversial colonial-era Kohinoor diamond is to be cast as a 'symbol of conquest' in a new display of Britain’s Crown Jewels at the Tower of London. The exhibition is set to open to the public in May. Historic Royal Palaces (HRP) - the charity that manages Britain’s palaces, said that the new exhibition will explore the history of the Kohinoor. The infamous diamond set within the Crown of the mother of the late Queen Elizabeth II, remains within the Tower. Camilla, in a diplomatic move, has chosen not to use this traditional crown for her coronation with King Charles II on May 6.
