Buckingham Palace is recognised around the world as the home of The Queen, the focus of national and royal celebrations as well as the backdrop to the regular Changing the Guard ceremony. In celebration of The Queen's historic Platinum Jubilee in 2022, The State Rooms at Buckingham Palace will feature a display looking at The Queen's Accession to the throne in February 1952.
On display will be examples from the remarkable series of portraits taken by Dorothy Wilding, that formed the basis of The Queen's image on stamps and in British embassies across the world until 1971. Also featured will be The Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara, which was a wedding gift to Princess Victoria.
