Photo display at Windsor Castle to mark Queen becoming longest reigning British monarch

Photographs of Queen Elizabeth I are set to be shown in a special outdoor display at Windsor Castle to mark her becoming Britain's longest reigning monarch.

The display, called Long To Reign Over Us, will feature a selection of images from 1952 to the present day, with the most recent photograph being one taken at the Order of the Garter Service at the castle in June.

The pictures, which will include official portraits, photographs of the Queen undertaking official visits, as well as informal family shots, will be shown in the inner quadrangle of the castle, which is not normally included in the visitor route.

The display will run from September 9 - the day the Queen's reign overtakes Queen Victoria's - until January 28.

It will move to Castle Hill and the North Terrace on October 6.

Entry will be included in the price of a general admission ticket. Advantage card holders go free.

Displays will also be on show at Buckingham Palace and the Palace of Holyroodhouse.
