St. Edward's Crown - Royal Heritage Collections
St. Edward's Crown is the official "ceremonial crown" used in the coronation of the king or queen at Westminster Abbey in England. It is brought out and used only for this purpose and occasion. This crown is brought from the Tower of London to the coronation of the sovereign where it is placed on the monarch's head. After the completion of the coronation ceremony, St. Edward's Crown is transported back to the Tower where all the crowns are kept under heavy guard 24/7 until each one is required for the next royal event. The crown the king or queen use on all other occasions is known as the "working crown" and it is called the Imperial State Crown worn by the monarch for all State and official ceremonies.
