Fit for a queen

How would you like to wear something like this on top of your head?

It might be nice to look at, but it's probably very heavy. In the past, crowns were a sign that someone was a part of a country's royalty. The families of kings and queens would keep crowns for years and years. Sometimes particular crowns even had special meanings and were worn at special times.

Although many kings and queens still have crowns that they wear at very special times, today anyone who has enough money can buy and own a crown.

Even you could buy a crown if you become very rich someday. But be careful -- don't let it slip off!
