The State Rooms lie at the heart of the Palace and provide the setting for ceremonial entertaining. They are furnished with many of the greatest treasures from the Royal Collection, including paintings by Rembrandt, Rubens and Canaletto, sculpture by Canova, exquisite examples of Sèvres porcelain and some of the finest English and French furniture in the world. Fashioning a Reign: 90 Years of Style from The Queen’s Wardrobe, the special exhibition at the Summer Opening of the Palace in 2016 tells the story of Her Majesty The Queen’s reign through the medium of fashion. From highlighting The Queen’s support of British designers to the development of her style through the decades, the exhibition will show the Queen’s contribution to the evolution of royal couture.
