In this unique publication Angela Kelly, Personal Assistant, Adviser and Curator to Queen Elizabeth II, tells the story of the creation of Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee wardrobe.

The reader is taken behind the scenes to explore how The Queen's concern to be seen by as many people as possible on public engagements and consideration for her hosts influence the design of what she wears. The book follows the entire creative process, from initial sketches and fabric swatches to the completed outfit with accessories, and celebrates the many remarkable highlights of the Diamond Jubilee year.
