Random Royal Moment: The Queen in Canada, 1957

In her first visit since the accession, The Queen filled out all the fashion and jewel stops on her visit to Canada in 1957. I won't go into any more detail, but I wanted to leave you with some jaw-dropping photos I haven't seen before, showing QE in her jewel-encrusted splendour.

And what a rare gem: The now dismantled Nizam Tiara
