Bob, I was thinking of Mary in 1911, who, though very young, wore her coronet in the full adult form, and Alexandra, also young, who wore a junior form, we assume.
Both were juniors but I felt that the decisions on their headwear were influenced by their degrees of relationship to the person being crowned.
One enjoyed adult status (perhaps a better word here than rank) and the other junior status.
Of course, one mother would have wielded more clout than the other!
