Royal Flashback- November 5

Royal Portraits, 1953

In honour of the release of Netflix- The Crown yesterday, we are taking a look at one of the series most publicised photos compared with the Queen’s portrait. In the series, Claire Foy (portraying Queen Elisabeth II) is wearing the George IV Diadem, the City of London Fringe Necklace, and the Greville Chandelier Earrings, which is quite close to the actual portrait taken in 1953 which features Queen Elisabeth II herself wearing the George IV Diadem, the City of London Fringe Necklace, the Greville Chandelier Earrings, and Queen Mary’s stomacher.
