From floral pinafores as a Princess, to bedazzled ballgowns as a newly crowned Queen, to the joy-inspiring rainbow wardrobe in later life, Queen Elizabeth II has always served fashion, as well as her country.
A master of championing great British design, Queen Elizabeth II has always enjoyed displaying the works of great homegrown couturiers. It was Norman Hartnell who designed her silk duchesse wedding gown, which she paid for using ration tokens as other brides in her country did in the wake of WWII, and her stylist Angela Kelly often designs her outfits when she’s attending events.
Hats are also an integral part of the Queen’s wardrobe. Marvellous millinery from Rachel Trevor-Morgan can usually be found atop of her majesty’s head, when she’s not wearing a crown of course.
Her other favourite accessories include her trusted Launer handbag – a vivaciously versatile purse – and perfectly practical pumps from Anello & Davide, who also created Dorothy’s ruby slippers in The Wizard of Oz.
Loyal to her country and loyal to her favourite British brands, long may she reign in spectacular style.
