A coronet is worn by noblemen and ladies and differs from a crown in that a crown features arches and a coronet does not, and from a tiara in that a coronet encircles the entire head and a tiara does not. Each of the children of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II have their own gold coronet, which is often used symbolically in their monograms.
