Review

Angela Kelly, personal dresser to The Queen since 1994, gives a fascinating insight on the intricate planning that goes into clothing one of the world's most famous women. --Daily Mail

Kelly takes readers behind the scenes at Buckingham Palace's dressmaking headquarters, revealing the extensive amount of time and planning that goes into each of the monarch's outfits. --Vogue

'Dressing The Queen: The Jubilee Wardrobe' is a glossy hardback that describes the lengthy process required to put together each of The Queen's outfits, from sourcing fabrics to cutting up sequins and ensuring that every cuff, hem and neckline was the appropriate length and height. --The Daily Telegraph
