To celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the formation of the modern Commonwealth, England's Buckingham Palace is hosting a special exhibit featuring 28 dresses worn by Queen Elizabeth II on some of her most important tours of Commonwealth countries, from Malaysia and Singapore to Australia and Zambia.

The exhibit includes pieces by Norman Hartnell, Hardy Amies and Ian Thomas. All of the couturiers meticulously planned the Queen's travel wardrobe, making sure to incorporate the countries' insignia into the garments whenever possible.

Brightly colored fabrics like cyan, lemon and lime green were frequently used; the bold hues ensured that her Majesty was highly visible at all times.

In addition, over 100 gifts presented to the Queen by the people of the Commonwealth are being showcased.

The historic exhibit dubbed "Queen & Commonwealth: The Royal Tour" is on display until September 30. If you can't hop the pond, check out the below gallery.
