Diana, Princess of Wales

In recent years, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has commemorated a great number of milestones: in 2015 she became our longest-serving monarch, in 2016 she marked her 90th birthday, and in 2017 she becomes the first ever to celebrate the 65th Anniversary of her reign. Having ascended the throne at the age of just 25 in 1952, Elizabeth II has now been on the throne longer than any of Her royal ancestors. With a reign spanning seven incredible decades, seamlessly travelling from one millennium to another, Her Sapphire Jubilee in 2017 will without doubt be the biggest royal celebration we have ever witnessed.
Following the birth of Prince George in 2013, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took up residence at Norfolk’s Anmer Hall. The 10 bedroom mansion was given to the newlyweds by Her Majesty the Queen, but with an increasingly demanding list of royal duties to uphold, the family have decided to relocate to London’s Kensington Palace. Not only will the move suit their son’s schooling transition from Montessori pre-school in Norfolk to Wetherby’s in the capital, but it will also benefit the Duke and Duchess’s wishes to develop their Royal Foundation charity, and help them prepare for their future as king and queen.
In 2017 we mark the 100th Anniversary of the most famous royal house – the House of Windsor. Formally established by George V in 1917, each Windsor monarch has contributed to the lasting legacy of our modern monarchy. Coinciding with this historic milestone is the 80th Anniversary of George VI’s Coronation in the spring – the third Windsor monarch who is often remembered for his outstanding support to the British public during the war effort. To finish off the year, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Prince Philip celebrate their Platinum Wedding Anniversary in November. Reaffirming their unparalleled position in history as the world’s most famous royal couple, this momentous occasion really does make for an exciting year ahead!
