Viewing Platinum Jubilee: The Queen’s Accession 

Now’s your chance to see magnificent jewels from the Queen’s personal collection, some of which have never been on public display before, alongside iconic photographs of Her Majesty wearing them. These include a series of remarkable portraits taken by society photographer Dorothy Wilding that formed the basis of the Queen’s image on stamps and in British embassies across the world until 1971.

Notable treasures on display include the Dorset Bow Brooch, a pair of diamond bangles and The Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara, which were given to Princess Elizabeth by her grandmother Queen Mary as a wedding present on the occasion of her marriage to Prince Philip. Also worthy of note is the Nizam of Hyderabad necklace, also a wedding present, which is set with approximately 300 dazzling diamonds.

There is plenty to explore beyond the exhibition too. After wandering around the 19 magnificent State Rooms, which are only open to visitors for 10 weeks each summer, head to the Palace Gardens which are described as a ‘walled oasis in the middle of London’. Make sure you save time for a coffee or afternoon tea at the Garden Café to enjoy the views over London’s most famous lawn!
