What Happens To Queen Elizabeth's Clothes After She Wears Them?

Have you ever wondered what happened with Queen Elizabeth's elegant fancy clothes she has worn in the last seven decades since he came to power?

We can all see that, when she appears in public, Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain (95 years old) always attracts attention through her brightly colored outfits. The sovereign has an impressive wardrobe, given the fact that she must always be elegant and properly dressed when participating in official events.

Even if she does not deviate from the official regulations of the British Royal Family when it comes to etiquette, Queen Elizabeth always follows fashion trends in terms of clothing.

The queen always chooses to wear bright colors, large hats matched with outfits, and almost never prints.

What Happens With Queen Elizabeth's Clothes?

Queen Elizabeth never wears the same outfit twice at important events.

Therefore, the sovereign prefers to either change her outfits and if she gets bored of them, she sends them to her dressers, who are then allowed to either wear them themselves or sell them. But, the labels are removed and they never mention that they were worn by Her Majesty.

A royal expert has revealed what really happens to these discarded outfits.
"Queen Elizabeth’s clothes are a constant source of comment in the media. So, when she finally gets tired of it, she will hand it to one of her dressers. They can either wear it or sell it," said Brian Hoey, author of a 2011 book about the life of Queen Elizabeth, entitled "Not in Front of the Corgis", according to "The Royal UK".

"There is one provision. All labels must be removed and anything that could possibly identify it as having come from royalty obliterated," added the royal expert.

Who Creates Queen Elizabeth's Clothes?

Many of the fancy clothes Queen Elizabeth wears at public events are designed and made at Buckingham Palace by Mary Angela Kelly and her team.

Angela Kelly (born 4 November 1957, Liverpool) was taken on as a dresser in 1993 after working as a housekeeper for a British diplomat. She has served as Personal Assistant and Senior Dresser to Queen Elizabeth II since 2002 and creates all of her outfits, from day dresses to evening gowns.

The British fashion designer, dressmaker, and milliner sketches at least four different designs for a particular piece of fabric. From those, Her Majesty can choose.

Angela Kelly shared a number of sweet anecdotes about her time working with the monarch in her 2019 book, "The Other Side of the Coin: The Queen, the Dresser, and the Wardrobe". She revealed that she is the royal aide who helps to wear in the Queen's new shoes as they share the same shoe size, "Hello Magazine" reported.

Angela Kelly's formal title is Personal Advisor to Her Majesty (The Queen's Wardrobe). Not only is she the curator and designer of the Queen's clothing, but she is also her close confidant and friend.
