Coronation handkerchief, George VI

I bought two handkerchiefs in an antique shop (jumble bric-a-brac overflowing place). I tried to look it up to find out more about it, figuring images would be out there. I'm not finding any.

Here's another one at the Victoria and Albert museum, also different:

I got another one, too, a cotton child's handkerchief printed in three colors:
