The crown for love

For 10 December we have an historic wrap…

I, Edward the Eighth of Great Britain, Ireland and the British Dominions beyond the Seas, King, Emperor of India, do hereby declare my irrevocable determination to renounce the Throne for Myself and for My descendants, and My desire is that effect should be given to this Instrument of Abdication immediately. In token whereof I have hitherto set My hand this tenth day of December, nineteen hundred and thirty six, in the presence of witnesses whose signatures are subscribed.

And so we have a royal wrap for a momentous occasion. I used a golden Christmas tree decoration as the centrepiece which makes a statement against the gold wrapping paper but the size of the crown made it quite difficult to pack and store…aaahhhh the price we pay for regal wrapping….
