Queen's wardrobe opens to public

By Hilary Duncanson

The largest display of the Queen's dresses and accessories to be shown in Scotland will open this month to mark the monarch's 90th birthday.

Fashioning A Reign: 90 Years Of Style From The Queen's Wardrobe will open at Holyroodhouse, Edinburgh, on April 21.

The show will focus on significant events in the Queen's life, her support of British craft and design, and tartan in royal dress.

An outfit worn by Queen Victoria will also be displayed as an early example of such tartan.

The exhibition is one of three on a similar theme taking place around the UK this year. The display will be followed by shows at Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle.
