American restaurateur Jason Wolin has a large collection of memorabilia connected to the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. The Duke of Windsor would have been King of England, but gave it up to marry the Duchess. Plans had been made for his coronation, but it never happened. In the collection are rare pieces of china and pottery made for the coronation that never was. In a different sense, Jesus never had His coronation. Instead of being crowned as King, He was crucified; but we believe some day in the future He will return and be acknowledged as King of kings and Lord of lords.
