The Queen and Prince Philip will be celebrating their diamond wedding anniversary later this year. To mark the occasion, Buckingham Palace will be staging an exhibition to celebrate their 60 years of marriage. Archive films of the Queen’s Wedding in 1947 will be shown. Behind the scenes preparations for the ceremony will also be made public for the first time. The Queen’s wedding dress will feature in the exhibition, together with the dresses worn by her mother and grandmother. Some of the Queen’s jewellery collection and military uniforms worn by Prince Philip and the Queen’s father, King George V1 will also go on display. The Queen and Prince Philip will be the first reigning monarchs to celebrate 60 years of marriage. The exhibition will open on 28th July and will be held until 25th September.

Would love to see the Queen's wedding dress! Each of our paper dolls have a wedding dress among their outfits, it would be neat to have Queenie's look like the Queen's!!!

This is another testament to the Queen...she is celebrating 60 years with the same man!!! WOW!!!!

Brings back memories. I saw her when she was still a Princess and came to Africa and remember the celebrations we had in Rhodesia when she got married and when she became Queen :)

Yes the exhibition will bring back a lot of happy memories Jackie. I've seen photos in magazines. The Norman Hartnell dress the Queen wore was beautiful.
