News Update: The Buckingham Palace Summer Exhibit Opens

A news update of general interest for fans of sparkle...
Video: Exhibit highlights
The summer exhibit for Buckingham Palace's annual public opening is just as you'd expect this year: it celebrates the 60th anniversary of the Queen's coronation. On display among other objects are outfits worn to the ceremony, including the Queen's incredible coronation gown. Also up for peeks are some of the jewels worn on that day, such as the George IV State Diadem, also known as the Diamond Diadem, and the Halo Scroll Tiara, which was worn by Princess Margaret on that historic day (long before it ever made royal wedding history!). Sounds like a must-see for any jewel enthusiasts in the London area - do report back if you get a chance to view it!

In other news...the Queen has arrived at Balmoral for her summer holiday, with corgis but without Prince Philip, who will join her later. I have a few things planned to keep us interested while Her Maj hides away, so stay tuned!
