Richmond Coronet

The 10th and present Duke of Richmond holding his ducal coronet.

Am I mistaken, or does it appear rather large in relation to His Grace's head? The lining must be well padded.

Ducal coronets are distinguished from others by eight gold strawberry leaves.

Coronets are customarily worn by hereditary peers and peeresses at coronations.

I have written an article about ducal coronets here.
