Re: crowning of the Queens consort

Did the queen consorts Alexandria wear the full crown when she attended opening of parliament?
A recent item stated that until Queen Mary, consort of George V, the Queens consort usually were crowned with the crown of Mary of Modena. Mary had her own crown created. Yet, a picture of Queen Alexandra shows her in her coronation regalia and the crown on her head seems to be one created expressly for the event.
