In celebration of The Queen's historic Platinum Jubilee in 2022, the Palace of Holyroodhouse will host a display looking back at Her Majesty's previous Jubilees.

The display will feature outfits worn by Her Majesty on occasions to celebrate the Silver, Golden and Diamond Jubilees.  In 1977 for The Queen’s Silver Jubilee, the royal couturier Sir Hardy Amies designed a striking ensemble of dress, coat and stole in pink silk crepe and chiffon with a matching hat designed by Simone Mirman with flowerheads hanging from silk stems.  The ensemble was worn at the Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral on 7 June 1977 marking the 25th anniversary of The Queen’s Accession.
