A Tiara Made With 1,333 Diamonds
The Diamond Diadem, a famous relic of the royal family, is set with 1,333 diamonds, including a 4-carat yellow diamond.

This tiara has been altered by the various queens who have reigned since it was commissioned in the 1800s and is currently worn by Elizabeth II to and from the State Opening of Parliament.

It's good to be king, if just for a while
To be there in velvet, yeah, to give 'em a smile
It's good to get high and never come down
It's good to be king of your own little town
Yeah, the world would swing if I were king
Can I help it if I still dream time to time
It's good to be king and have your own way
Get a feeling of peace at the end of the day
And when your bulldog barks and your canary sings
You're out there with winners, it's good to be king
Yeah I'll be king when dogs get wings
Can I help it if I still dream time to time
It's good to be king and have your own world
It helps to make friends, it's good to meet girls
A sweet little queen who can't run away
It's good to be king, whatever it pays
Excuse me if I have some place in my mind
Where I go time to time

PUNKSICLES?

Not sure how they aren't all vertical unless: thawing/sliding/refreezing?

Would have to have been timed just right, methinks.
