People worldwide can never get enough of Britain’s royal family. For some reason, the world is fascinated with everything they do and always wants as close a look at them as possible. Now, thanks to an exhibition called “The Queen’s People” fans of the family can get a 360 degree look at their favorite royals wearing their traditional uniforms. The exhibit will be held at the art gallery Eleven in London (11 Eccleston St
London, United Kingdom) from Aug. 19-Sept. 19. Featured in the exhibition are 50 total portraits including those of Queen Elizabeth II, Prince William, Duchess of Cornwall Camilla Parker Bowles, and a pikeman. British photographer Hugo Rittson Thomas has taken these unique shots and began work on this project back in 2012.

Thomas told the publication, International Business Times, that
“It was a privilege to photograph her majesty and other members of the royal family and to blend the history and traditions of royal life with a modern photographic style. I hope people will enjoy seeing these photographs as much as I enjoyed making them.”
The Queen is seen in a red coatdress designed by her personal dresser since the past 20 years, Angela Kelly. The look includes the Waterloo badge of The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards and black court shoes. The handsome Prince William is seen wearing his military frockcoat for the Irish Guards, while the Duchess of Cornwall is wearing formal wear by Bruce Oldfield. Her outfit also has her wearing a brooch that the Queen gifted her on her 60th birthday. The pikeman is seen in the traditional uniforms of the foot soldiers.
