Crown Jewels were buried in a biscuit tin at Windsor Castle during the war, new documentary reveals

Gemstones from the Crown Jewels were kept safe during the Second World War in a biscuit tin hidden at Windsor Castle, a new BBC documentary is set to reveal. BBC One programme The Coronation will detail for the first time how the historic artefacts were secreted in a deep hole on the orders of King George VI. The gems, including the Black Prince's Ruby from the Imperial State Crown, were placed in the biscuit tin and buried under a sally port - a secret exit from the castle used in times of emergency. 12-01-18
