The eclectic and exotic Commonwealth gifts to The Queen

The Queen has made over 200 visits to Commonwealth countries and is the most well-travelled monarch in history. In the year that the Commonwealth Games come to Scotland, the Palace of Holyroodhouse hosts an exhibition of the gifts that have been presented to Her Majesty from every region. As The Queen's Baton continues its 190,000 kilometre journey after travelling through the Commonwealth, we go to the one place where we can get a glimpse of the whole Commonwealth in Scotland before the games.
