Hard Glamour

Monmouth Michael Clarke: At a grand durbar in Lahore in 1846, Lord Hard­inge asked Rajah Golab Singh if he could see the Kohinoor. It was produced, and Singh and my great-­grandfather, William Edw­ards, who was on the gov­­er­­­nor­­-general’s staff, were told to show it to the asse­mbled rajas. It did its tour and was passed from hand to hand for more than 20 minutes before my great-grandfather was able to return to its rightful owner, Maharaja Duleep Singh. If it goes on tour again, it should certainly end up in the Punjab.
