The Queen: 60 Photographs for 60 Years

This exhibition celebrates Her Majesty’s 60 years as Sovereign, from the early years of her reign in the 1950s to the present day, through a wide-ranging selection of images, illustrating both key events in her remarkable life and more informal family occasions.

The majority of the photographs shown here have been generously presented by the photographers or agencies concerned, specifically for this display. These images present us with a portrait of The Queen, one of the most photographed women in the world, as a daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and Head of State, both at home in the United Kingdom and during some of her many travels around the Commonwealth and the world at large.
