DESCRIPTION

To celebrate The Queen's Diamond Jubilee, this exhibition will show portraits of Her Majesty by photographer Cecil Beaton (1904-1980).

Presenting highlights of the V&A's archive of Beaton's royal photography, the exhibition will depict the Queen in her roles as princess, monarch and mother. The exhibition will feature nearly 100 portraits, from wartime photographs of Princess Elizabeth with her family, to tender images of The Queen with her own young children and official portraits that convey the magnitude of her role as Britain's monarch.

This exhibition is organised by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
