Inter regalia (Scots Law): something that inherently belongs to the sovereign. This may include property, privileges, or prerogatives. The term derives from Latin inter (among) and regalia (things of the king).
This term is divided into:
- regalia majora (major regalia), which are inseparable from the person of the sovereign.
- regalia minora (minor regalia), which may be conveyed to a subject.
