The Smithsonian Institution will unveil a new collection of artifacts, including cabinet-like chambers for the King of England, in a ceremony on Thursday.
The exhibit, titled “The Cabinet of the King,” will be at the National Museum of American History in Washington.
The collection includes objects from the U.S. government and other institutions, as well as items from the British monarchy.
“This exhibition is about the king and his legacy,” said Stephen E. Tufnel, curator of art, culture and history at the Smithsonian.
“The cabinet is an important part of the museum’s collection, and I think it’s important that people understand the history of the British royal family, the King’s reign, and the history that the cabinet provides.”
“The Cabinet is a powerful artifact that is a testament to the power of the monarch,” he added.
Tufnel said the cabinet is part of a larger collection that includes royal paintings, documents, and furniture.
The cabinet includes a copy of the First Lady’s Diary, a handwritten letter from the Queen to her daughter, and a letter written by William Shakespeare.
It is housed in the Royal Collection, a collection of objects in the British Museum that is housed at the British Library in London.
“The cabinet will be an important component of our collection, but we’re not just interested in this particular piece,” said Michael W. Tye, assistant curator of museum history.
“It will be a piece of history that will have an enduring legacy.
This is not an artifact we’ll just be collecting.”
Tye said the collection will be “very much a work in progress,” and there will be some changes in its appearance.
“I think it is a fascinating and significant piece, but it’s also a really important piece,” he said.
The Smithsonian has been the subject of controversy in recent years, after the Trump administration announced plans to remove the nation’s National Museum, an institution that includes a cabinet, from the National Mall.
