Queen Elizabeth coronation exhibition opens at Buckingham Palace

The largest exhibition to explore the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II has opened at Buckingham Palace, to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the event.

The show displays the dress, uniform and robes worn on June 2, 1953 by the newly-crowned Elizabeth. It welcomed its first guests on July 27 and will run until September 29.

The exhibition also includes paintings created to record the event and objects used by the Queen at the ceremony at Westminster Abbey.

Celebrate her reign with this superb signed photograph of Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh with Princess Anne and Prince Charles, autographed just one year after the coronation.
