LONDON (AP) - A wide selection of dresses worn by Queen Elizabeth II since her childhood days will be on display at Buckingham Palace this summer.

Palace officials said Friday the show will be open to people who visit the summer opening of the State Rooms at the palace in central London.

The unprecedented display to mark her 90th birthday will include the wedding dress worn by the queen when she married Prince Philip in 1947 and the dress she wore to her coronation.

The display will also include a black silk velvet dress she wore to a 1956 film premiere where she met Marilyn Monroe and many of the queen’s distinctive hats.

The State Rooms are opened to tourists who purchase tickets each summer. The display opens Saturday.
