|The coronation of King Haakon and Queen Maud took place on 22 June 1906 in Nidaros Cathedral in Trondhjem. Queen Maud's coronation dress, made of gold lamé in the princess style, has scalloped lace sleeves. A decorative pattern of flowers and ribbon bows was embroidered in gilt metal thread, gold-coloured sequins, artificial pearls and diamanté. The making of the gown and embellishment of the golden fabric represents a collaboration between fashion houses from Maud's new home Norway and her country of birth Britain.
