The royal family will be attending the celebration of the sixtieth anniversary of The Queen’s coronation. This is the first time the Duchess of Cambridge has been to a service in Westminster Abbey since her wedding day and is the first major state event held at Westminster involving the Duchess of Cambridge.. It is unknown at this time what the royals will wear, but the realistic choices will be either full gowns with tiaras and crown jewels, or the more restrained fashions such as day suits worn to regular engagements. Fashion designer Norman Hartwell was commissioned to make Queen’s coronation gown, a white silk dress embroidered with the floral emblems of the countries of the Commonwealth.
