The past 70 years have seen a 25-year-old Princess transform into a nonagenarian monarch who was respected and loved the world over.

A woman whose views were never heard, Queen Elizabeth II deployed fashion as a means to communicate and signal her position to the crowds who gathered to see her in public and the millions who watched her television broadcasts: “I must be seen to be believed,” she said. The Queen’s evolving attitude to dress reflected a visual landscape that started as genteel reportage in black and white and over the years developed into a 24/7 live-streamed news cycle, flashed around the world in seconds and driven by social media. Through it all, Elizabeth II’s style was an extension of all she represented as Queen; it was stoical and cautious yet dazzling and majestic. The Queen: 70 Years of Majestic Style celebrates the fashion evolution of Elizabeth II and takes a look at an unrivalled archive of unique fashion moments that bear testament to the care and consideration the Queen took in looking the part for a role like no other.

A woman whose views are never heard, Queen Elizabeth II has deployed fashion as a means to communicate and signal her position to the crowds who gather to see her in public and the millions who watch her television broadcasts: “I must be seen to be believed,” she has said. The Queen’s evolving attitude to dress reflects a visual landscape that began as genteel reportage in mostly black and white and has over the years evolved into today’s technicolor 24/7 news cycle, flashed around the globe in seconds and driven by social media. Incredibly, in her 70th year as monarch, the Queen feels as relevant as ever before–and she is, undoubtedly, a style icon. The Queen: 70 Years of Majestic Style celebrates the fashion evolution of Elizabeth II in her unprecedented Platinum Jubilee year.
