Asunto:  The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh Wedding Day Exhibition

A retrospective in photographs of the recent exhibition on the occasion of the Queen and Prince Philip's 50th wedding anniversary.

The exhibition ran from 28 July to 25 September 2007.

Amongst the items shown are those pictured in the post below, which include the various fabulous jewels given to her by Queen Mary (the stomacher, and the 1893 Girls Tiara). She and the Duke also received 131 pairs of nylon, 17 pairs of silk stockings, a loin cloth from Mahatma Gandhi spun by himself, and a bath sponge. (grin)

Beautiful sugarer detail.

Norman Hartnell designed the bridal wedding gown, and Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother's gowns for the wedding. Here is a rather idealised sketch of the Queen. (grin) (grin)

"Champagne" colour, wouldn't you say? Unusual!

Nice photos, huh? I have a couple more that I can add, later. Meanwhile, let's pause to remember the people not on the balconies, but on the streets (literally ON them) -- braving the cold overnight, so that they could have a good vantage point for the Royal Wedding.

:lol:

Wearing their old man's trousers to keep warm and nipping on granddad's gin. The Cockney spirit!

Sure! It's all part of the stagecraft of scenery. She may be understated, but the Queen always gives the public what they expect of her.
