Still, she rises

The way we were • Photographs from the Country Life archive

My favourite painting Wilfred Emmanuel-Jones • The Three Ages of Woman (detail) by Gustav Klimt

For Queen and country (life) • As a rule of thumb, people do not feature on the cover of COUNTRY LIFE very often. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is, as always, an exception. Melanie Bryan picks out some classic covers closely associated with her reign

Long to reign over us • What are the origins of our national anthem? John Goodall investigates the extraordinary story behind both the tune and the words, as well as their influence on other nations

Capturing the royal gaze • Over the course of her reign, more than 1,000 artists have been invited to paint Her Majesty. Charlotte Mullins reveals some of the secrets behind seven of the most recognisable

A royal face for the future • The façade of Buckingham Palace is so familiar that it’s easy to forget it is younger than COUNTRY LIFE. It also strikes John Goodall as dull. To mark the Jubilee, he asks six architects to suggest, in playful spirit, how it might be changed for the better

To honour our Queen • The Household Cavalry faces the busiest season in its 360-year history, but its dedicated men and women are ready for the challenge, reports Octavia Pollock

What they said

Transporting splendour • Royal Yacht Britannia, Leith, Edinburgh A property of the Royal Yacht Britannia Trust The Queen is the best-travelled monarch in British history. John Goodall looks at the story of the yacht she helped furnish, both as her floating home and as a theatre of state

Streets ahead • Planning a Platinum Jubilee street party?Emma Hughes has a recipe for success–and asks some famous foodie friends of COUNTRY LIFE to share theirs

Where classic style reigns • Far from being a passive dresser, The Queen pays close attention to what she wears and what those clothes convey. She has left a lasting impression on the fashion industry, believes Justine Picardie

In the name of The Queen • A rose, a reservoir and a telescope are only some of the many quirky places and objects called Elizabeth II after The Queen, finds Carla Passino

Fit for a monarch • Platinum is one of the world’s rarest metals and fiendishly difficult to master. Sarah Royce-Greensill looks back at its discovery and meets the jewellers brave enough to use it

Platinum status • Sarah Royce-Greensill picks the platinum products that are a cut above a souvenir mug
