A special exhibition at Buckingham Palace this summer will recreate the day in 1947 when Princess Elizabeth – now Queen Elizabeth II – married the Duke of Edinburgh in a glittering ceremony at London’s Westminster Abbey. The event, marking the Queen and Prince Philip’s 60 years of marriage, is part of the annual summer opening of the palace (July 28 – September 25).
Princess Elizabeth’s magnificent dress and 13-foot bridal trail, made of ivory silk decorated with 10,000 seed pearls and designed by Norman Hartnell, will be shown alongside the glittering jewels she wore. Also on show are the dresses worn by members of the Royal Family and the uniforms of King George VI and the Duke of Edinburgh. For just a few weeks a year, visitors get to see inside one of the world’s most renowned palaces, strolling through the State Rooms and glimpsing the royal gardens where royal tea parties are staged.
Admission is by timed ticket and the cost, including the State Rooms, special exhibition and an audio tour, costs £15 adult, concessions £13.50, children £8.50. For tickets call 020 7766 7300 or see the website: www.royalcollection.org.uk.
