Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth’s Crown Jewels are held safely within the walls of the Tower of London. Her working crown alone contains 2,868 diamonds, including the second-largest colorless diamond in the world. The largest one is also a part of the collection. We will explore the following questions: Why do we have Crown Jewels? What are their significance? When are they used? 

Sean Moran, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and one of the renowned London Blue Badge Guides, can often be found in the Jewel House with Context clients. He will introduce us to the key emblems of majesty, symbols of authority, and divine blessing for millennia.  He will share with us that despite a hereditary line going back a thousand years, Queen Elizabeth II’s Crown Jewels are relatively new because one of her ancestors lost his head.

Designed as a visual presentation with close up images and video clips of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip this interactive seminar will delve into the Crown Jewels like never before. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with an increased knowledge of the whats and the whys and the whos behind these dazzling Royal pieces.

Since leaving university in 1982, Sean has lived and worked across the globe in a nearly 30-year career as a senior executive in financial services. He put his skills and knowledge to work in the Charity Sector in the UK for 7 years but decided life was too short to not focus entirely on his passions for people, history, art, and architecture. When not guiding, Sean is restoring a Georgian House and serving as a Parish Councillor. He is a freeman of the City of London and a freeman of the City Livery company of Clockmakers. He lives in London and Wiltshire.
