The Queen’s Coronation has been brought to life by a major new exhibition showcasing the ceremony’s fabulous dresses and artefacts – and private home movies. The dazzling coronation dress the Queen wore for the ceremony is the centrepiece of the exhibition marking the historic event’s 60th anniversary.

As the world watched the monarch being crowned at Westminster Abbey on June 2 1953, they also marvelled at the clothes designed for the momentous day. The exhibition brings together the dresses, robes and gowns worn by the Queen and her immediate family for the first time since the historic event, and important artefacts that played a part in the day.

Tables from the two coronation banquets staged at Buckingham Palace have been recreated with their lavish settings of Georgian porcelain and silver-gilt, and decorations of pink and white roses and carnations.

Alongside official black and white photographs the exhibition features private movies filmed behind the scenes for the Queen, that show the personal story behind the pomp and ceremony.

Exhibition curator Caroline de Guitaut, from the Royal Collection Trust, said the Queen toured the exhibition on Wednesday, adding she seemed very pleased.
