The Commonwealth: Gifts to The Queen

Palace of Holyroodhouse

Friday, 21 March 2014 to Sunday, 2 November 2014

In the year that The Commonwealth Games come to Scotland, a new display at the Palace of Holyroodhouse marks The Queen's role as Head of the Commonwealth through gifts presented to Her Majesty by Commonwealth countries around the world.

The Queen has visited almost every country in The Commonwealth during her 61-year reign. Underlying these visits, and those made by foreign Heads of State to the United Kingdom, is the important principle of friendship, often recognized by an exchange of gifts.

The Commonwealth: Gifts to The Queen reflects the diverse traditions, craftsmanship and creativity of Commonwealth nations and is included in the price of your visit to the Palace of Holyroodhouse.
