<br />
A stunning maid of honour dress from the Queen's Coronation has been painstakingly restored and will go on display to mark her Diamond Jubilee.<br />
<br />
The outfit, designed by the Queen's dressmaker Norman Hartnell, was worn by Lady Rosemary Spencer-Churchill at the 1953 Westminster Abbey ceremony.<br />
<br />
It has a tiny 22ins waist, with a motif of gold leaf and pearl white blossom.
