And so it begins! It’s been 60 years in the making, but Her Maj’s Diamond Jubilee is finally upon us. Whether you’re a Kate-and-Wills-loving royalist or just out for the perks of a four-day weekend, there’s no reason not to get into the spirit of things in utmost celebratory style. Here are our top picks of the best regal designs – fit for any Queen.
Because what says ‘party’ better than a bit of bunting? The perfect thing to set off your street party outfit, Tatty Devine’s red, white and blue perspex necklace is fun, colourful and very wearable. Combine with a glass of Pimms and a jam scone and watch the compliments roll in.
Having been made a Dame by Queen Liz herself, it’s no surprise that Vivienne Westwood has turned her classic Britannia-inspired designs to a Jubilee-themed collection. The Red Carpet Capsule Collection features ten dresses and four pairs of earrings, drawing on the Union Jack motif in textures of satin and taffeta.
An elegant tribute to the Jubilee, this Silken Favours scarf features a pack of Royal Corgi dogs, the iconic St Edward’s Crown and the Sovereign’s Orb. Can be worn around the neck, as a hairband, or, if you really want to go all out, as a headscarf, Queenie-style.
This reuseable bag (emblazoned with the Union Jack, English roses and a crown-wearing corgi) is cute, unmistakably British AND good for the environment. How could we say no?
The Royal Sceptre – priceless
Well. We can still dream.
