Gifts Fit For A Queen: The Fascinating New Display At The Palace of Holyroodhouse

The countdown to the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games has officially begun, and with it comes the arrival of a captivating display to mark The Queen’s role as Head of the Commonwealth. More than 70 gifts presented to Her Majesty by Commonwealth countries around the world make up the collection that now sits at The Queen’s official residence in Scotland, the Palace of Holyroodhouse. Since her coronation in 1953, the Queen has visited almost every country in the Commonwealth, and the exchange of gifts between Heads of State to display friendship has been a vital part of these visits. Among the quirky collection is a shell collage from the Bahamas, a portrait by an artist from Papua New Guinea titled “Missis Kwin”, which translates as “Mrs Queen” and a coconut calabasa bowl from Belize – there’s nothing predictable about what you’ll find inside this royal residence.

The Commonwealth: Gifts to The Queen runs until 2 November 2014.

Photograph: In 1996, the people of Papua New Guinea presented The Queen with a portrait by the celebrated artist Mathias Kauage entitled ‘Missis Kwin’, translated as ‘Mrs Queen’. A native to Papua New Guinea, Mathias Kauage was awarded the Order of the British Empire for services to the arts by Queen Elizabeth II.
