The longest-serving monarch of England Queen Elizabeth II passed away on Thursday. At the age of 96, UK monarch died in the presence of her family at Balmoral Castle which is situated in the Scottish Highlands. King Charles III, her eldest son is all set to succeed her. As the world mourns her death, let’s revisit some of her iconic outfits that had a hidden message or meaning. 

1. Queen Elizabeth II’s Wedding Dress

According to many documentaries and Palace staff, the Queen’s wedding gown had a very special message. Curated by Joanna Marshner, the gown was paid for by ration coupons given by ordinary women post War. When the Queen married Prince Philip, Britain was still recovering from the economic losses incurred in War and it was difficult to pay for such a heavy gown. So the Queen used her ration coupons given to her by the Government along with a few sent to her by women across the country to pay for the gown.

The dress, made of satin, had many spring flowers, which gave a message of hope and renewal to the British nationals at that point.
