Visitors will be given a rare glimpse into the Queen's Windsor Castle wardrobe past and present at a new exhibition of the monarch's style.

Her family wedding outfits, ceremonial robes, riding clothes and childhood pantomime costumes - all worn by the Queen at the royal residence over the decades - are among the ensembles going on show for the first time.

Fashioning A Reign: 90 Years Of Style From The Queen's Wardrobe opens at the Berkshire castle tomorrow. Among the items will be elaborate costumes worn by a teenage Princess Elizabeth for a production of Aladdin in 1943.
