Discover behind the scenes stories spanning 300 years into the Marlborough’s relationship with the British Royal Family.
Blenheim Palace will celebrate its centuries-old relationship with the Royal Family in a major new exhibition opening this spring, Royal Connections Crowns and Coronets.
The Palace’s close connections to the monarchy will be showcased with an exhibition of previously unseen artefacts, crowns, coronets, robes and photo albums. Among these there will be personal effects from royal weddings, coronations, and holidays.
The exhibition will also feature spectacular costumes from The Crown and Bridgerton, and an original Maid of Honour’s dress from the Queen’s Coronation.
Original items on display include an ornate, newly-restored crown worn by Queen Anne, a white coronation suit worn by Lord Ivor at the coronation of George V in 1911 and the 10th Duke and Duchess’ Peerage robes and coronets for the coronation of King George VI in 1937.
