'Truly stunning!' The Queen wows in 'gorgeous' diamante dress for new Jubilee portrait


The Queen, 96, has just released her official Platinum Jubilee portrait. Her Majesty looks effortlessly regal sitting in Windsor Castle dressed all in blue. The backdrop of the picture shows the Round Tower. The portrait is symbolic, as Queen Elizabeth is the first ever British monarch to mark 70 years of reign.

The photograph was taken by Mr Ranald Mackechnie in the Victoria Vestibule in Windsor Castle, according to a Buckingham Palace statement.

The Queen’s knee-length blue dress coat was designed by Angela Kelly and looks beautiful on the monarch.

The blue fabric was wool Charmelaine and was embellished with pearls, plus a diamante trim around the neckline.

This also featured on the cascading down the front of the coat.

For jewellery, the monarch kept things relatively simple.

Queen Elizabeth could be seen wearing a two-strand pearl necklace and a simple pair of pearl earrings.

She also accessorised with her gorgeous engagement ring, in a touching nod to Prince Philip.

This was paired on the same left hand with a glistening gold watch.

Noticeably absent was a brooch, which the Queen usually wears in these historic portraits.


Royal watcher @loveforcambridg commented: “Aw what a beautiful picture of a remarkable woman [sic].

“You are loved and respected all around the world so thank you for everything Your Majesty.”

One fan noted: “Symbolic with the statue of King Charles II in the background.

“Nice photograph!”
