Queen Elizabeth II

By Belinda Hungerford

Unless you’ve been avoiding all news reporting you can hardly have missed the announcement that Queen Elizabeth II is now the longest serving British monarch in history.

In ACP’s archives we have a press print from Max Dupain’s series Waiting for the Queen. Although the image is dated 1953, it was in 1954 that the newly crowned Queen visited Australia, the first time a reigning monarch had done so.
