As the Queen of England celebrates her Platinum Jubilee, Vogue Scandinavia takes a trip down Her Majesty's sartorial memory lane in the Nordics

The British monarchy is commemorating a historic milestone this year, as Queen Elizabeth II becomes the first of the country’s cherished Royal Family to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, entering the 70th year of her reign. Having turned 96 on April 21, 2022, Her Majesty remains one of the country’s most beloved figures, and the Brits are expecting a summer filled with Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

In addition to her abiding, steadfast services to the country, the Queen is lauded for her timeless style, a sartorial skill honed to perfection over the 70 years on the throne. A lesson in sophisticated yet vibrant modern-day royal dressing, Her Majesty never misses the mark with her carefully composed get-ups, often featuring a tailored silhouette and colours that pack a punch.

The Queen has also visited the Nordics throughout her reign, and to honour her Platinum Jubilee, Vogue Scandinavia has compiled a gallery of the most memorable looks the monarch has sported in Scandinavia.
