Browsing through The Guardian’s recent online picture galleries, I came across a quite interesting selection of images of our Queen and her sartorial choices throughout the decades -
Being one of the most photographed women in the world ever, we see how over 8 decades she has taken on some of the subtle and not-so subtle styles of the times.
A family stroll in the country in 1942 shows how the future Queen of England is growing into a young lady – see how she has already adopted the much loved headscarf.
All these outfits are what you would expect from a young Royal and Queen, but then the 1960s happened….
The 1970s and 1980s saw the Queen’s wardrobe choices reflect the fashions of the time, perhaps playing a bit safe but still taking on the colours and styles of the era.
