Member of the British royal family, husband of Queen Elizabeth II (1921–2021)
Having been in the spotlight since birth, the Queen certainly knows a thing or two about dressing for the public eye.
As a young princess, Elizabeth took to wearing the era-defining A-line-style floral tea dresses and pleated dresses, opting for practical tweed and skirt suiting for horse riding and other outdoor affairs.
In her late teens, she graduated to fitted dresses and skirt suits as she took on her duties as a senior royal.
In 1947, she married Prince Philip in a dress that was certainly fit for a future queen. Designed by her go-to couturier Sir Norman Hartnell, it featured a dramatic 13ft train and intricate embroidery representing the flora of the UK and Commonwealth countries.
When she succeeded her father to the throne in 1952, the Queen embraced elegant tulle and embroidered gowns for state banquets and receptions, whilst honing her day-to-day style by enlisting designer Hardy Amies (until 1990).
Today, Her Majesty turns to dressmakers Stewart Parvin and Angela Kelly for her instantly recognisable colourful skirt suits, which, according to daughter-in-law Sophie, Countess of Wessex, she wears to ensure she can be seen in large crowds.
As we count down to the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, we take a look back at the royal style icon's most memorable looks.

Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said on Saturday that he was disappointed in China's efforts to develop areas in the East China Sea, saying that it was "unacceptable." Speaking to reporters in the western city of Kyoto, he said that the government had lodged a complaint against China via diplomatic channels. The Japanese foreign ministry released a statement on Friday confirming an increase in Chinese efforts to develop natural resources in the East China Sea, including in areas that are west of the midpoint between Japan and China.
Rishi Sunak and Akshata Murty have made the Sunday Times Rich List for the first time with their joint £730 million fortune. Last month, it was revealed that Ms Murty had non-dom tax status, which it was estimated saved Ms Murty £20 million in taxes on dividends from her shares in Infosys. She later agreed to pay foreign taxes on her UK income. Mr Sunak was cleared of breaching the ministerial code by Boris Johnson’s standards adviser after considering the tax affairs.
Australians head to the polls on Saturday to vote in a national election that shows the Opposition ahead in opinion polls. The Labor Party is narrowly ahead of the ruling conservative coalition although a strong showing by climate-focused independents could lead to a hung parliament. Opposition leader Anthony Albanese's centre-left Labor Party is a favourite to win its first election since 2007.
