Feel like royalty when you visit the Queen’s Gallery at Buckingham Palace.
The gallery is a permanent space dedicated to changing exhibitions of items from the Royal Collection, the wide-ranging collection of art and treasures held in trust by the monarch for the nation.
What is there to see at the Queen's Gallery?
Dedicated to works of art from the Royal Collection, the Queen's Gallery was constructed in 1962 at Buckingham Palace, out of the bomb-damaged ruins of a chapel destroyed in an air raid in 1940. The innovative and modern art gallery is one of the most significant additions to Buckingham Palace in 150 years.
In addition to gems from the Royal Collection, there's a changing programme of temporary exhibitions, featuring old master paintings, rare furniture, decorative arts and images from the photograph collection.
What is the current exhibition?
The current exhibition showing at The Queen's Gallery is Style and Society: Dressing the Georgians. An exciting exploration into 18th-century fashion at a time in history where Britain was rocked by social, political and technological revolutions. From the upcycling of garments to imposing military uniforms
Deputy Surveyor of The King's Pictures and exhibition curator Anna Reynolds has created a space where artwork and textiles stand side by side, offering the audience a new perspective that cannot be found from only observing a painting. With the rare surviving examples of clothing, jewelry and accessories showcasing what was worn across all levels of society.
Impressive items from the collection include a British court dress (c1740-60) with an elaborately designed gown and petticoat, a dazzling necklace made from George III's dress-coat buttons (1818) and a one-of-a-kind piece from this period, Princess Charlotte of Wales' silk embroidered wedding dress (1816).
The current exhibition will run until 8 Oct 2023 and entry is included in the cost of a standard ticket to the gallery.
