Royal Bonus: The Queen in Costume


Still having trouble deciding what to wear for Halloween this weekend, dear readers? Well, you're in luck: I've brought along some inspiration today just for you! During World War II, Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret were tucked away at Windsor Castle for safekeeping. Every year, they put on pantomimes with elaborate costumes to entertain themselves and the rest of the castle's residents. Just check out some of these outfits!
