The coronation outfits worn by King Charles and Queen Camilla have gone on display at Buckingham Palace.

The Queen’s coronation dress was designed by Bruce Oldfield. It has floral designs in white and gold, which represent her affection for nature and the British countryside. Some personal details include the name of her children and grandchildren and depictions of her Jack Russell Terriers.

King Charles’s silk overshirt and purple coronation tunic were created by Turnbull & Asser and Ede and Ravenscroft respectively. The King’s Royal Naval Trousers and the Star, Collar and Great George of the Order of the Garter are also on display.

The Coronation display is part of the summer opening of the State Rooms. The outfits are displayed in the Ballroom, which was used by the King and Queen as a rehearsal space for the coronation service. The display will also include the jewellery and the insignia worn by the King and Queen.

Also included are the Anointing Screen, Throne Chairs and the Robes of Estate.

The Diamond Jubilee State Coach can also be found at Buckingham Palace for the summer opening.

The special Coronation display is included in a visit to the summer opening of the State Rooms at Buckingham Palac from 14 July – 24 September 2023
