A collection of the most memorable dresses from the Queen's wardrobe - including the outfit she wore to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's wedding - are to go on display.

Visitors to Buckingham Palace for the summer opening of the State Rooms will be able to catch a glimpse of outfits from her childhood to the present day.

Entitled Fashioning a Reign: 90 Years of Style from The Queen's Wardrobe, the exhibition will showcase pieces worn to a range of events, including family weddings and state visits.

The exhibit is one of three such royal fashion displays taking place at the monarch's official residences, also including Windsor Castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh.

The Queen's World War Two battle dress uniform will also be featured in the display.
