Happy Accession Day, Queenie!

Legendary photographer Cecil Beaton took the official coronation photograph of Queen Elizabeth II, shortly after the crowning ceremony in 1952. The V&A in London are hosting a Diamond Jubilee exhibition from February 8th - April 22nd - pay a visit if you're in town!

February 6th is Accession Day, marking the death of  George IV and the passing of the throne to Queen Elizabeth II. While the official coronation – and this year’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations – take place on June 2nd, today is an undoubted milestone.
