What are the Crown Jewels and Coronation Regalia?
The Crown Jewels are a collection of precious treasures that belong to the nation. The monarch looks after these on behalf of the country and they are kept at the Tower of London, where they are guarded night and day. Some of the Crown Jewels are part of a collection called the Coronation Regalia. These are used as part of the coronation ceremony when a new King or Queen is crowned.
