The Jubilee. No, not that one. The 1977 one.

1977: The Queen's Silver Jubilee. Here I am as Britannia (centre) with my sisters as Elizabeth I (right) and Elizabeth II (left). Elizabeth I's dress was made of gorgeous violet-coloured velvet and her curly red wig was a stocking cap with theatrical hair glued on! My mother made the costumes and my father made the fabulous royal coach that Elizabeth II rode in, out of an old pram.
The photo was taken in Manor Way, Chesham, England, on our way to a street party.
