Platinum Jubilee: The Queen’s Coronation

queen elizabeth ii

Visitors to Windsor Castle will have the rare chance to see, up close, the Queen’s Coronation Dress and the Robe of Estate that she wore for her coronation ceremony at Westminster Abbey on 2 June 1953. 

While it was one of the world’s first major events to be broadcast internationally, the chance to see these two garments is rare, making it an exhibition that you don’t want to miss. 

The Coronation Dress is made with fine white Duchesse satin and embellished with gold and silver threading, seed pearls, sequins and crystals. Her Majesty's Robe of Estate—which took around 3,500 hours to make—is equally awe-inspiring with rich gold embroidery and motifs.
