Mary Queen of Scots’ infamous gold rosary beads have been stolen, along with other gold and silver items worth more than 1 million pounds in a raid on Arundel castle. The beaded treasure carries historical significance, as it was carried by the former Scottish royal at her execution in 1587. Other valuables stolen in the raid include coronation cups given by Mary to the Earl Marshal. Castle staff were alerted on Friday evening after a burglar alarm sounded. The artefacts were taken from display cabinets along the public route. A spokesman for Arundel Castle Trustees has urged anyone with information to come forward.
