Queen Lizzie’s extraordinary changing looks: 48



View Profile

Not all of us will have thought of Queen Elizabeth as a style icon, or as having changed terribly much over the years.  In fact if you stop and think about it, you might conclude that all that has happened to her is that she has aged rather gracefully, always seeming the same.  But watching this video today will put a smile on your face as you remember her many many looks over many many decades.

Our over 60s, more than anyone else, have lived with Queen Elizabeth for your whole life, enjoying the monarchy for all its strengths and shortcomings.  This week our Queen celebrates her term as the longest reigning monarch of the British Empire.  And not just that, she’s the most widely-travelled head of state in history. From 1953 to 1954 she and Philip made a six-month, around the world tour, becoming the first monarch to circumnavigate the globe. She is also recognised as the first reigning monarch to ever visit Australia and New Zealand.

What age are are your finest memories of Queen Elizabeth at? Where does she seem her strongest in your memories?

  1. She has aged beautifully. Her skin is lovely. I guess not being exposed to the sun is the key. I love photos of her in the 50’s. She looks so glamorous.

    • One must remember London is as far north of the equator as an imaginary island 600 ks south of the southern most tip of NZ or 900 ks south of Hobart. So they see very little sun compared to OZ. B|

  2. Hi Elizabeth – how sentimental is your name – you can be Elizabeth for today! Actually my sister was named Elizabeth but always known by her second name Joan!

  3. My memory is the Duke Prince Phillip. I think it was 1964. They were walking around and a likely lad said “Hey Duke what’s her name?” Very seriously the Duke replied “Elizabeth.” Both kept going but Duke had a smile on his face.
