This dress will not be forgotten: At her coronation on June 2, 1953, the then 25-year-old Elizabeth wore a dress like in a fairy tale. The masterpiece was designed by fashion designer and purveyor to the court Sir Norman Hartnell. Even then it was clear: Elizabeth is a true fashion queen.

After she had to undergo knee surgery in 2003, the Queen showed up in a rather unusual look – with pants. Actually, the palace protocol does not like it when female members of the royal family appear in trousers instead of a skirt at representative appearances, culottes & Co. are only allowed in their free time or during sports. So that the photographers could not photograph any details of the knee surgery, the Queen still opted for this gray power suit.
