Great Britain called to return art confiscated from other countries. This was reported by The Economist.

According to the publication, the turning point in the dispute over the return of art from other countries could be the coronation ceremony of Charles III. It is specified that Charles wants his wife Camilla at the ceremony to wear the crown in which his grandmother Elizabeth was crowned in 1937. The decoration of the crown is the Kohinoor diamond brought from India in 1849.

According to experts, if Camilla's headdress is decorated with a precious stone from the time of the colonization of India, the palace will have to deal with a diplomatic scandal.

This, in turn, may serve as a reason for movements in the long dispute between Great Britain and its former colonies, demanding the return of works of art once exported from their territories.
