I saw this on the BBC website, - picture from each year of her life

I think it's rather lovely, but is a reminder of a whole life in the spotlight

Shallow, as know, but I scrolled through to see how she looked when she was my age!

Also, she did go through a terrifically frumpy phase in the 60s/70s.

Here are more pix from an exhibition of her clothes

The ones from the 1950s are wonderful.

She was so beautiful, and so young when she became Queen. Lovely photos - thanks for sharing.

I just had a peek in this topic (after seeing it mentioned in AIBU).

This set of photos is back on the main BBC page.

Plus of course ones of the Queen in very distinctive green earlier today. The rationale is that she likes to stand out so people can see her easily (she's rather short). So she certainly succeeded in that!

Very green!

And the Duchess of Cnmbride looks like she's wearing one of those retro sweetie flying saucers on her head.
