In celebration of our Majesty’s birthday, we take a look through 90 years in style.
How sweet! This vintage shot of Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret in matching furs dates from 1939.
We love the quintessential 1940’s elegance of this 1943 image of Queen Elizabeth in Norfolk at harvest time.
Princess Elizabeth in her uniform as a second subaltern in the ATS, 1945. When peace was declared, it is said that the princess joined the crowds outside Buckingham Palace anonymously to celebrate the end of the war.
We love the high octane glamour of this look, chosen by the Princess Elizabeth for the Royal Variety Show 1946 at the London Palladium.
The Queen warmed hearts by saving her ration cards to pay for her wedding dress at her 1947 wedding to Phillip Mountbatten. The Norman Hartnell dress designed for Princess Elizabeth featured a smattering of sparkling crystals, pearls, silver thread embroidered on tulle.
We adore the layering on this soft gown worn by Queen Elizabeth in Edinburgh, 1947. Pared with long gloves and a simple string of pearls, the timeless elegance of this shot is touching.
A beautiful moment captured in this 1949 Royal portrait. The tiara pictured was a wedding gift from her grandmother, Queen Mary.
Timeless British style. With perfectly coordinated accessories and not a hair out of place, Queen Elizabeth was picture-perfect for this 1953 Bermuda visit.
We just adore this striking monochrome design worn by her Majesty in 1957, pictured with her husband Prince Phillip.
We love lemon at John Charles and this carefully co-ordinated lace ensemble is no exception. Finished beautifully by a corsage and subtle pearls, this 1959 look is timeless.
This 1968 family shot captures the bold colours (and rising hemlines!) of the decade. Beautifully considered A-line shapes and a touch of beehive nod to London’s Swinging 60’s backdrop.
Bright and beautiful. The bold polka dot and signature pearls of this 1972 Bangkok visit are refreshing yet regal.
Prince Phillip’s indigo ensemble is a great complement to this patterned two piece.
We love the elegance of this 1977 rainy day shot – perfected by the over the shoulder cape!
Pretty in pink. We love this hot pink 1992 look – flattered by the floral detail on the dress and rim of the hat.
The metallic bag and ornate tiara are softened by sumptuous cashmere and fur to create a truly regal appearance.
