Coinciding with the 90th birthday of Her Majesty The Queen, the first of three special exhibitions, titled Fashioning a Reign: 90 Years of Style from The Queen's Wardrobe, opens today at the Palace of Holyroodhouse.
In the video, exhibition curator Caroline de Guitaut gives us a brief overview of what to expect from the showcase, which is currently the largest display of The Queen's dresses ever shown in Scotland. The group of outfits displayed charts Queen Elizabeth II’s life and reign from childhood to the present day, and represents family, official and ceremonial occasions.
Fashioning a Reign: 90 Years of Style at the Palace of Holyroodhouse runs April 21 - October 16, 2016.
The two other exhibitions are at the Summer Opening of the State Rooms, Buckingham Palace from July 23 - October 2, 2016 and Windsor Castle from September 17, 2016 - January 8, 2017.
