EDITORS COMMENTS
This striking photograph captures a moment from the historic Coronation Durbar of King George V and Queen Mary in Delhi on the 12th of December, 1911. The Durbar, a grand ceremonial event, marked the formal coronation of the new monarch as the Emperor of India, symbolizing the British monarchy's continued rule over its Indian colonies. The King Emperor and Queen Empress, dressed in their regal attire, present themselves to their subjects from the ornate and elaborate stage, adorned with thrones draped in ermine. The couple's regalia, including the imperial crowns, are prominently displayed, emphasizing their royal status. Surrounded by their attendants, both Indian and British, the scene exudes an air of grandeur and tradition. The Coronation Durbar was a significant event in the history of the British Empire, representing the continuation of colonial rule and the symbolic connection between the monarchy and its Indian subjects. The photograph serves as a testament to the grandeur and ceremonial nature of the occasion, offering a glimpse into the past and the complex relationship between the British and Indian peoples during the colonial era.
