in detail

Images of the teenage Princess Elizabeth are followed by glittering and highly-staged photographs of the Queen in her Coronation robes. There are tender portraits of the Queen at home with her husband and young family, and later official portraits. The exhibition includes a number of rarely seen photographs, as well as film clips and Beaton's personal scrapbooks, and shows how the popular image of the monarchy changed dramatically over the course of the 20th century.
