The painting, ‘The Coronation Theatre, Westminster Abbey: A Portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’, is the latest portrait to be commissioned by the Queen and depicts her in the Sacrarium of London's famous abbey. Queen Elizabeth is pictured wearing a State Dress beneath the crimson velvet Robe of State, which she wore to her Coronation in June 1953, and which she has worn to the State Opening of Parliament each year for the last 60 years. Her diamond necklace and earrings were made for Queen Victoria who wore them for her own coronation. The monarch stands at the centre circle of the Cosmati pavement, on the exact spot where she was crowned.
