The Queen's coronation was aired live worldwide in black and white on June 2, 1953, but now Buckingham Palace, as part of the Queen's 60th anniversary on the throne, is showing an exhibition of memorabilia from the event in all its colour. The Queen's coronation dress with the 6.5 metre long purple Robe of Estate is the centrepiece of the exhibition, curated by Caroline de Guitat. SOUNDBITE Curator, Caroline de Guitaut, saying (English) "There's a lot of history behind the Queen's coronation dress. It was designed by the couturier Norman Hartnell, who had been designing for the Queen from the early 1940s as Princess Elizabeth. He designed her wedding dress in 1947 and he was in many ways the obvious choice to design what would be one of the most important dresses that she's ever worn. Of course, it was going to be viewed not only by the 8,251 members of the congregation at the service but also broadcast worldwide because the coronation was televised live for the first time in its history." SOUNDBITE Curator, Caroline de Guitaut, saying (English) "The dress really embodies so many symbols which deliver lots of important diplomatic messages. It incorporates in its embroidery not only the national emblems of the United Kingdom but also emblems of certain of the Commonwealth countries and this was something which the Queen herself suggested that Hartnell might like to combine in its design." SOUNDBITE Curator, Caroline de Guitaut, saying (English) "We want visitors to Buckingham Palace to see this unprecedented display but most of all to view the palace as if it was on coronation day itself because of course, Buckingham Palace was a great focal point of the coronation. All the wonderful coach processions departed from the palace including of course, Her Majesty The Queen departing with the Duke of Edinburgh in the gold state coach which can be seen in the royal mews just by the Palace. Visitors will see other works of art and the other of the 19 state rooms and understand how they were used on this very auspicious occasion." The exhibition will be on display from Saturday (July 27) through to September 29.
