Queen of the catwalk! Buckingham Palace to stage fashion show to celebrate the quintessentially British brands loved by the Royal family

I think this is going to be more ridiculous than the diamond jubilee  Lips Sealed

Well I hope they pay for this themselves. The Jubilee lasting an entire year has cost the taxpayers enough money.

Why not make it a one-day event instead of stretching it to four days? Or just a few minutes of standing at the balcony and waving at the plebs?

It's just another (IMO) unnecessary pomp and circumstance event.

As people who wish to attend this event have to pay 30 pounds for the day visit or 90 pounds to go to the gala at night I am sure they will cover the expense.

It actually reads more like a 'best of British connected to the royal family' show with numerous exhibitors (all holding the royal warrant) in the grounds of BP.

https://www.coronationfestival.com/the-event/about

What is the Coronation Festival all about?
 
The Coronation Festival, taking place over four days in the Gardens of Buckingham Palace, will celebrate the 60th anniversary of The Queen's Coronation. This exciting and unique event, hosted by the Royal Warrant Holders Association, will bring together - for the first time on this scale - over 200 companies who hold Royal Warrants of Appointment. Promoting the very best of UK plc, the Festival will celebrate innovation, excellence and industry through trade and craft.
 
The Festival will be open to members of the public who will be able to buy a ticket for the daytime event; giving visitors the opportunity to explore the Gardens and buy, sample and experience the wide range of products and services from the exhibitors. Or, buy a ticket for a magnificent Gala evening of entertainment - a celebration of music and dance over the past 60 years.


If you don't want to attend you don't have to do so but I am sure that many people will part with their cash to enjoy this event and the gardens of BP.

So they are also going to make money off of something they will find a way to bill the taxpayers for, it is their MO they just can't help themselves.

Some of the firms that they use are way out of the price range of the average British person. Most of their clothes are bespoke so their clothes are keeping people in work. However unless there is an increase in exports as a result of this event I don't see many ordinary UIK residents being impressed at people flashing their wealth in these austere times.

There was a poll that said that less people supported the monarchy after huge supposedly uplifting events and they think throwing another expensive party is going to do what exactly huh These events have no longlasting effect on people.They need to be seen working for those who have less .

A few months before the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, letters were sent out by the 16th Duke of Norfolk to six lucky aristocratic girls. The Duke was the Earl Marshal — the official charged with organising all the great state occasions — and the letters invited them to serve as Maids of Honour.

Following the tradition of Queen Victoria, the girls were all daughters of Dukes, Marquesses, and Earls, unmarried, and aged between 17 and 23. They were left in no doubt what a signal honour they’d been given.

Victoria’s Coronation in 1837 wasn’t properly rehearsed and, although she didn’t notice, nearly descended into chaos as the girls tripped over their own trains and were scolded by the Mistress of the Robes for not keeping step properly. No such chances would be taken in 1953.

The face is the most familiar on the planet, reproduced on more coins, notes and stamps than any human likeness in history. But it is safe to say that we have never seen Her Majesty the Queen pictured quite like this. Not only is she in the full and elaborate regalia of her most exclusive order of chivalry but she is standing in the middle of nowhere.

No trick photography has taken place. There has been no digital enhancement by some special effects boffin. This spectacular image of the Sovereign – published in Weekend for the very first time – really is the Queen, standing next to a remote stream called Gelder Burn on her Balmoral Estate.

She is dressed in the green velvet mantle of the Most Ancient and Most Noble Order of the Thistle, the Scottish counterpart to England’s Order of the Garter. From her shoulders, held by white satin ties, hangs the Collar of the Order made of golden thistles and rue sprigs, from which, in turn, hangs a tiny St Andrew and his saltire cross.

NEVER *despise* correction,for those who correct you ,truly LOVE you .They are willing to displease you and possibly lose your friendship ,rather than see you destroyed. Those who *despise* you ,on the other hand ,will allow you to FAIL...because what do they care ?

Every praise is not good and every criticism is not evil..!
