Queen Elizabeth inspects Platinum Jubilee art submissions

The Queen beams as she plays with her beloved dog Candy and looks through cards and gifts from well-wishers in a series of new photos shared to mark her Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

Buckingham Palace released the new photos to celebrate the monarch’s 70 years on the throne.

Taken in the Oak Room at Windsor Castle a few weeks ago, the Queen sits with a display of memorabilia from the Golden and Platinum Jubilees.

In a charming snap, a curious member of his family seems to want a glimpse of his cards – his pet dog Candy.

Candy is a dorgi – a cross between a corgi and a dachshund – and she walked around the room, inspecting a small group of media representatives capturing the viewing.

The queen said, “And where are you from? I know what you want”, probably a reference to a candy bar, and called Candy and gave her a stroke.

The monarch, who owned more than 30 corgis during her reign, currently has three dogs – the now elderly Candy, a young corgi called Muick and another corgi pup who replaced Fergus the dorgi pup, who died suddenly in May this year last.

A card celebrating the 2002 Golden Jubilee caught the Queen’s eye – it was made up of eight bottle caps, including bottles of milk, Coca-Cola and Schweppes, and bore the handwritten words ‘Ma’ am You’re The Tops”.

“It’s fine, simple but ingenious,” the Queen told Dr Stella Panayotova, librarian and assistant curator of the Royal Archives, who joined her for the visit two weeks ago.

The exhibit included a Golden Jubilee letter from a nine-year-old boy called Chris, titled “A Recipe for a Perfect Queen”.

Her list of ingredients – which included ‘500ml of royal blood’, a ‘touch of jewels and fancy dresses’ and ‘a dash of loyalty’ – had the Queen laughing and she said: ‘That’s quite fun , is not it ?

Platinum Jubilee cards were also on display and the Queen praised the design of one with a photo of her as a young woman surrounded by flowers with the words ’70 glorious years’.

Recipes and photos of Platinum Pudding contest entries were on display, showing the results of cooks who took on the challenge to create a memorable dessert worthy of Queen and nation.

Another royal aide told the Queen: “We have had a number of Platinum Pudding competition entries that have arrived in recent weeks. People have been very creative.

The monarch flipped through images of the entries and later said, “Looks like they’re all going to end up with crowns on them.”

She also studied a fan presented to Queen Victoria to mark her Golden Jubilee in 1887 by the then Prince and Princess of Wales, later Edward VII and Queen Alexandra.

In the years following Victoria’s Jubilee, it was signed by members of her family, including her eldest child, the Princess Royal, known as Vicky to those close to her, and her granddaughter Princess Alix , later the Tsarina of Russia, and the Prime Minister at the time, the Marquess of Salisbury. .

The Queen opened the fan and remarked how easily it could have been damaged when signing, adding: ‘Amazing isn’t it, and it still closes.’

Commenting on the signatures, she said, “Well, that’s very interesting to see, quite a gathering.”

During the viewing, the Queen paid a moving tribute to her late father by wearing his aquamarine brooches and diamond clip, worn separately diagonally over her turquoise dress.

It was an 18th birthday present from his beloved “dad”, George VI, in April 1944.

The two art deco style pieces were made by Boucheron from baguette, oval and round diamonds and aquamarines.

She also chose to wear the precious brooches when she addressed the nation on the 75th anniversary of VE Day in 2020 and for her Diamond Jubilee televised address in 2012.

Elizabeth II ascended the throne 70 years ago this Sunday when, on February 6, 1952, the sick king, suffering from lung cancer, died at Sandringham in the early morning.

The Queen, who is staying at the Sandringham estate, usually spends each membership day in private, reflecting on the bittersweet anniversary of the loss of her father and the start of his reign.
