Published to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the creation of the modern Commonwealth, this beautifully illustrated book includes a selection of Queen Elizabeth II's dresses and jewellery, worn on her many visits to the countries of the Commonwealth. For each royal visit Norman Hartnell and Hardy Amies created day, afternoon and evening wear, giving consideration to matters such as the national colours of the host nation, selection of fabric appropriate to the climate, and the requirements of protocol. The designers' sketches are reproduced alongside details of the finished dresses, with the accessories and jewellery that completed the outfits. Additionally the book illustrates for the first time a selection of the remarkable gifts presented to The Queen from countries around the Commonwealth and other fascinating memorabilia.
