Queen Elizabeth  -  DSC-2242 - Royal Heritage Collections
Her Majesty Queen Consort Elizabeth in her Coronation Robes of State.
An official painting, of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, in her Robes of State following the coronation in 1937, is displayed in one of the State Rooms at Buckingham Palace, which I had the rare privilege of seeing in late August, 2011. This was an extraordinary opportunity for my wife and myself to personally see these and other royal paintings in the Queen’s Gallery. Being able to view all eleven State Rooms at the palace and to walk in and through the very rooms which the royal family now and of decades past have walked and occupied during some royal and historic occasions was absolutely thrilling. This truly was such an awesome experience. I deeply value those moments and cherish them as a great personal honor. The State Rooms are only used by our present Queen to entertain her royal guests, as prime ministers, foreign kings and queens, presidents, the Pope and other distinguished visitors in an official capacity. Ordinarily, the royal family members do not occupy these State Rooms on a daily basis, as they have their own private apartments where they live and conduct their daily routines. These private quarters are not visible or accessible to the public.
