Diamond Jubilee


It is 60 years since the accession of Queen Elizabeth II to the throne. To mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, we’ve drawn together images from our Collections which reflect a Royal connection. Whether it’s photographs of the Queen carrying out her Royal duties, or places in Scotland with a link to the Queen and the Royal Family, browse our gallery below and explore the drawings, photographs and aerial views which span her reign.
