Queen Victoria was strongly in favour of wearing tartan whilst in Scotland, and Prince Albert appears to have adopted it from 1847. The plaid brooch, hilts, knives and skean dhu are set with Scottish cairngorms. The royal couple went on to design their own tartan for Balmoral.

Purchased by Prince Albert in 1848
