Just wondering where is the Crown that Freddie wore during the Magic Tour in '86?? Is it in some sort of a meusem or with Freddie's family??

I never thought about that. I would guess any of these people may have it, Mary Austin, Freddie's Mother and/or Sister, maybe even...Brian, Roger or well no..not John..but Brian or Roger could be, never know as they were so close & like family too.

I think it was burned. I remember something about burning his belongings with his body. Only his stamp collection survived as Bomi considered it his.


That time will come, one day you'll see, when we can all be friends.

It's more then likely this crown and the robe were simply rented from a local costume/fancy dress shop.

Could be wrong...but i have always thought it was nothing more then that. After the tours' run, they were returned to the shop for further use by others.

You can't be serious. Have a look at the quality (or lack thereof) of the rubbish in costume shops. This is Queen we're talking about. It would have been specially designed and commissioned to Freddie's specs, and made of the finest quality materials.

I have no idea where they went. Mary would be my guess.

Diana Moseley designed the crown and cape especially for Freddie.
