Did you know the Queen's crown weighs as much as a bag of potatoes? Or that she has her own tartan nobody else is allowed to wear?

Written by the Waterstones Children's Book Prize-winning Julia Golding, The Queen's Wardrobe is packed with fascinating stories and astounding facts about our record-breaking Queen. The detailed, humorous and colourful artwork from bestselling Kate Hindley shows what it's really like to grow up as a princess.

Impressively researched, and with zappy illustrations * Telegraph - The best Jubilee books to buy for children *
Julia Golding and Kate Hindley tells the story of Elizabeth II's life through the prism of her wardrobe, from her christening gown to the beaded dress she wore in her James Bond 2012 Olympics parachute stunt. With charming illustrations, it's full of stories and surprising facts about our longserving monarch. -- Charlotte Heathcote * Daily Express *
This book is (a) stunning rummage through the wardrobe of Her Majesty. Absolutely breath-taking illustrations lead the reader through the historical outfits which mark key events in her reign. A majestic book for fans of the royals, fashion and great beautifully designed books for children. * WRD Magazine *
