Madame Tussauds will share its replica costume collection of the Queen’s costumes

Replicas of some of the Queen’s signature outfits from the past 70 years are to be displayed at Madame Tussauds.

To celebrate Platinum Jubilee, tourist attractions in London will display their Royal Dress Collection.

Sir Norman designed the Queen’s coronation dress and the gown on show is a recreation of one of the monarch’s tour gowns worn by the Queen for her 1956 visit to Nigeria.

It will also feature the Queen’s grand Order of the Garter mantle – the ceremonial robes used on the emperor’s seven wax figures.

Another dress is a richly embroidered French white satin gown from 1956 that is based on the designs worn by the Queen at Order of the Garter ceremonies.

Tim Waters, General Manager of Madame Tussauds London, said: “Madame Tussauds London’s relationship with the British Royal Family goes back as far as Mary Tussauds.

“When King George III sat down for Mary in 1809 it began a tradition that the British monarch Madame Tussauds would sit down for London artists to create their figures.”

He continued: “It is a tradition we are incredibly proud of and it continues to this day as the Queen generously agreed to seven meetings with our artists during her reign.

“More figures of Queen Elizabeth II have been created than anyone else in Madame Tussauds history and with that comes a wide array of stunning outfits over the years – some of which were designed and created by the Queen’s dressmakers herself. “

The Royal Dress Collection will be on display for two weeks at Madame Tussauds in London from 27 May.
