Harrods’ Diamond Jubilee

By Harriet Hawksworth 15 May 2012

From Tuesday 15th May, Harrods windows will display 31 exclusive crowns designed by the world's leading brands in celebration of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

Drawing on inspiration from the Queen's Coronation in 1953, the Knightsbridge store's façade will also feature Union Flags and two 50-ft tall regal banners heralding the Queen's Royal Cypher and St. Edwards Crown.

To mark the unveiling of the façade, Harrods employees will fill the pavement outside on the morning of the 16th May to sing God Save the Queen and Land of Hope and Glory, whilst waving British flags.


The one-off crowns gracing Harrods windows are designed by an array of British and International brands - from Paul Smith, Mulberry and Jo Malone to Valentino, Bulgari and De Beers.
In addition, a glamorous gown display, with dresses made by the world's leading international designers including Roberto Cavalli, Valentino and Elie Saab, will be showcased and sold exclusively at Harrods to celebrate the Victoria & Albert Museum's Ballgowns: British Glamour Since 1950s exhibition.
A replica of the Queen's 1953 Coronation satin gown designed by British designer, Norman Hartnell will be showcased alongside the designer gowns, as a tribute to the day the Queen ascended the throne.
