A miniature model of the Queen, wearing a crown with real diamonds, will go on display at Legoland next month to celebrate the 60th anniversary of her coronation.

Those who visit the theme park in Windsor, as well as the Legoland Discovery Centre in Manchester, will get to see the model over the upcoming bank holiday and during the May half term.

It will be topped with a 1.5 centimetre-high rhodium-coated silver crown which is encrusted with 48 tiny diamonds.

It was created by British jewellery designer Dinny Hall, whose previous clients include Prince William, Samantha Cameron, Sienna Miller and Annie Lennox.

The miniature Queen will stand at 10 centimetres high and will include the crown and will appear on the balcony of a Lego Buckingham Palace. She will be joined by miniature models of the Duke of Edinburgh, Price Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, as well as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

The figure will be on view from May 25th to 27th before it is moved to Manchester from May 31st until June 2nd.
