Included in Palace admission

Kensington Palace, in partnership with Fox Searchlight Pictures, is displaying the beautifully intricate costumes from the upcoming feature film The Favourite. The film explores the relationships and power struggles of Kensington Palaces’ largely forgotten Queen, Queen Anne and her two female favourites, Lady Sarah Churchill (Rachel Weisz) and Abigail Masham (Emma Stone) as they bid for power, status and love. Discover how three time Oscar winner Sandy Powell (The Young Victoria, Cinderella) took inspiration from 18th century silhouettes and experimented with colour, fabric and design to create the lavish costumes on display. Presented in the historic Queen’s Gallery, each costume will be complemented by quotes from Powell alongside historic context provided by Historic Royal Palaces curator Matthew Storey.
