Sacred Scottish stone taken to London for coronation

The coronation of King Charles III will see history play out in the modern age. Beneath the gilded coronation chair will be an ancient, rectangular slab of sandstone weighing approximately 152kg.

One symbol, the “Coronation stone” – also known as the Stone of Scone or Stone of Destiny – has its own particularly contentious history.

The stone was where the kings sat during this ceremony, symbolising a solid base for the kingdom’s security and stability.
