The story of Queen Elizabeth II, who famously said ‘if I wore beige, no one would know who I was’, told through her clothes and jewelery. The Queen’s Wardrobe is a gorgeous gift to treasure, celebrating a long life devoted to service.

This book tells the story of a young princess who grew into one of the world's best-loved and longest-serving royals, touching on wartime truck-fixing, ration-book wedding dress making, splendid gowns, the Crown Jewels, and her trusty wellies.

Includes a foreword by Michele Clapton, costume designer for series one of Netflix's The Crown, giving a peek behind the scenes at the recreation of some of the Queen's most famous outfits.

Written by the Waterstones Children's Book Prize-winning Julia Golding, The Queen's Wardrobe is full of fascinating stories from the long life of our record-breaking Queen. The detailed and colorful artwork from bestselling Kate Hindley shows what it's really like to grow up as a princess.

This is a large hardback book with a jacket and shiny foil detailing, making it a special gift for children and adults alike.
