HM The Queen at 90

Longest reign exhibition at Kensington Palace

Daily from 7 June 2016

Kensington Palace is celebrating the 90th birthday of Her Majesty The Queen Elizabeth II with a film installation, free to view in the palace.

The film highlights key moments in the life of HM The Queen, including her coronation and wedding, her role as Head of State undertaking ceremonial duties, meeting world leaders and representing Great Britain on the global stage.

HM Queen Elizabeth, whilst still a Princess, lived temporarily at Kensington Palace with Philip, Duke of Edinburgh after their wedding in November 1947. You can see a selection of the Queen’s dresses and magazine covers showing The Queen from the past 90 years in the Fashion Rules Restyled exhibition at the palace.

In September 2015, HM Queen Elizabeth became the longest serving British monarch, a title previously held by Queen Victoria, who ruled from 1837 to 1901 and was born at Kensington Palace. You can discover more about Queen Victoria’s life and reign in the Victoria Revealed exhibition at the palace, which explores the Queen’s story in her own words using extracts from her journals and letters, in the rooms where she grew up.
