Cel­e­brate the Queen’s 90th birth­day with the ex­hi­bi­tion Fash­ion­ing a Reign: 90 Years of Style from The Queen’s Wardrobe (to 2 Oct).

High­lights in­clude Nor­man Hart­nell’s prim­rose yel­low dress which the Queen wore in 1969 when Prince Charles was in­vested as the Prince of Wales.’ As well as colour­ful out­fits and hats – the Queen of­ten wears yel­low to stand out – you can see her off-duty rid­ing jacket and jodh­purs.
