    The historic Stone of Destiny is to be moved from Edinburgh Castle for the Coronation of King Charles. An integral part of the royal ceremony, the stone is a symbol of monarchy both north and south of the border. Now held in the Crown Room of the castle, the red sandstone weighing 24 stone (152kg) – which is also known as the Stone of Scone – will be transported by a team of experts once the date of the Coronation is known.

    Grocery-store layouts in Scotland are different from ones in the US. Shutterstock I moved from the United States to the United Kingdom in 2017. In my experience, living near a major city is much cheaper to do in Scotland than it is in the US.  Grocery-store layouts in the UK are confusing to me, especially when it comes to locating items like bread or eggs. In the UK, going to the doctor involves little paperwork and almost no bills, which is a huge difference from healthcare in the US. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. I moved from Massachusetts to Scotland in 2017. In the time since, I've encountered a dazzling array of differences between life in America and life in the United Kingdom in areas like food and healthcare. These are some of the things about living in the UK that have surprised me the most.

Max Mumby/Indigo/Getty Images, Mikhaila Friel/Insider Like Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, I spent my summer quarantining in Scotland.  I left London to return to my home city, Glasgow, to spend lockdown with my family.  While Her Majesty enjoyed six weeks at Balmoral Castle in the Scottish Highlands, I don't think it's just the luxury 50,000 acre estate that draws her to my country each year. Returning to a place with gorgeous scenery, exciting history, and the friendliest people was the best decision I could have made — and I'm sure the Queen feels the same.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.

    There are some things that just aren't as common in the UK. Thomas Barwick/Getty Images; grandriver / Getty Images I moved from the East Coast of the US to Scotland in the UK and one thing I miss from back home is the food.  Chunky mashed potatoes, canned cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie all make me nostalgic for the States. There aren't as many boxed macaroni and cheeses or Oreos to choose from in the UK.  Saltine crackers and mini doughnuts weren't really things I craved in the US, but I miss them now that they aren't as readily available.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. I moved to Scotland in 2017 after spending most of my life on the East Coast of the US.  Although I love living in the UK, there are definitely things I miss from my life in the States, and American food is at the top of that list — followed by cheap gas and the imperial system.  Here are a few dishes, snacks, and grocery items that I've really missed since...

During his 2016 campaign, Donald Trump insisted that if he was elected, there would be a strict separation between his business interests and the federal government. But Trump, as president, has continued to promote the interests of the Trump Organization. And according to New York Times reporters Maggie Haberman, Mark Landler and Lara Jakes, Trump tried to move the British Open to his resort in Scotland.

But Johnson, according to the Times reporters, felt pressured and brought up Trump's idea when he spoke to David Mundell, Scotland's secretary of state. : "The episode left Mr. Lukens and...
