This is a hidden-object adventure in which you'll move between various areas in
and around Buckingham Palace looking for items listed at the bottom of the
screen.  Some objects you'll come across can be used in other areas of the
palace to solve puzzles, and some of the items are clues--usually in the form
of a letter--to the mysterious disappearance of the Crown Jewels.

If you get stuck and can't find one of the listed objects, just tap the name
of the object and you'll be able to purchase clues with credits.  Extra credits
can be earned by locating hidden crowns; there are two hidden crowns in each of
the settings you'll encounter.

~ Victoria Memorial ~

*Crowns: On the ground to the right of the winged statue; at the foot of the
right-hand guard statue.

*Key items: Letter located near the clock on the far right; bronze feather
held by the winged statue; letter X at the foot of the left-hand guard statue.

 
~ Admiralty Arch ~

*Crowns: Atop the right-hand gate; in a cloud above the building.
 
After finding all the hidden items at the arch, take a look at the engraved
lettering near the top of the building.  Use the letter X you found earlier on
the whited-out X at the end of the engraved phrase to find a hidden scroll.  
Now you'll have to rearrange letters to complete three phrases contained in the
scroll.  Tap a letter to activate it, then tap another letter to swap their
positions.  Here's what the scrambled portions should spell out:
 
WAR DIED
 
A VICTOR I
 
P ME I SIT
 
Now enter the open gate and use the bronze feather on the nose protruding from
the wall to discover the first jewel, the Princess Peridot.

Return to the Blue Drawing Room and examine the chessboard.  The goal of this
puzzle is to place the black knight on the board so that white is in checkmate.
If you're not familiar with chess or if you're stuck, place the knight two
squares below the white rook (castle).  Now exit the chessboard closeup and put
the prism on the stand sitting on the mantelpiece.  Take the Opal Knight from
the chessboard to end the chapter.

Now examine the mantelpiece.  You need to place the five knight figures in the
correct positions.  The resulting placement should form a chain between one
figure and the next.  Start on the left with the figure extending his right arm
backward; next should come the figure extending his right arm forward and left
leg back.  In the center position, place the figure with his right leg forward
and head tilted back, followed by the standing figure tilting his head back and
sword forward.  Lastly, place the kneeling knight extending his sword to the
left.  Now take the letter and Ruby of Kukun from the fireplace.
