Crown Jewels of Scotland & The Stone of Destiny

Becoming a king or queen means a big lavish celebration with lots of fancy traditions. Scottish ceremonies were no different - monarchs here wore a jewel encrusted crown, while holding an elaborate sword and a sceptre.

Honours of Scotland

The Honours of Scotland and the Stone of Destiny were both used throughout history in the crowning of Scottish, English and British monarchs. They might date back hundreds of years, but they've been well looked after and you can see them on display at Perth Museum (Stone of Destiny) and Edinburgh Castle (Honours of Scotland).
