WHEN:

From 17th September 2016 to 8th January 2017
Paid Entry (£20.00)

WHERE:

Windsor Castle, Windsor, SL4 1NJ

WHAT:

In celebration of The Queen's 90th birthday, three special exhibitions will be staged across each of Her Majesty's official residences during 2016. Fashioning a Reign will chart significant events in The Queen's life and the nation's history through an unprecedented collection of dress and accessories designed for these occasions, from childhood to the present day.

Constituting the largest collective display of The Queen's dress ever mounted, the first exhibition will open at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh for Her Majesty's birthday on 21 April 2016. The second, and largest exhibition will be at the Summer Opening of the State Rooms, Buckingham Palace, from 23 July to 2 October 2016 and the third will open at Windsor Castle from 17 September 2016 to 8 January 2017.

In total, over 150 outfits worn by The Queen will be presented across the three Palaces, with each special exhibition displaying a selection of outfits chosen because of their close association with the location.
