(Also originally sent May 30) While I'm on the list and thinking about it, there are also supposed to be some excellent exhibits displaying fashions from (the current) Queen Elizabeth's clothing over the years. Apparently there's a brief period of time when they all overlap, if you plan your trip carefully!
For those of us unlucky enough to not be there in person, there are some small but clear photos online. https://www.royalcollection.org.uk/exhibitions/fashioning-a-reign-90-years-of-style-from-the-queens-wardrobe To my eyes, many of the dresses are fairly timeless, but the millinery seems to be much more date-specific. It may just be a matter of eveningwear versus daywear, but I thought the difference was notable.
