A replica of St. Edward’s Crown, worn by Freddie Mercury in his final concert with Queen in 1986, is displayed at the Sotheby’s exhibition in London, Wednesday, April 26, 2023. The crown is said to be based on St. Edward’s Crown, which will be featured in King Charles III’s coronation next month. Unlike the authentic centerpiece of Britain’s Crown Jewels, the headpiece worn by Mercury is only estimated to sell for 60,000 to 80,000 pounds ($75,000-100,000). (AP Photo/Kin Cheung)
