EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph captures a regal moment in history as King George V and Queen Mary gracefully attend the Devonshire House Historical Costume Ball during the Diamond Jubilee festivities of 1897. The Duke of York, future monarch George V, is depicted in the grand attire of George Clifford, Earl of Cumberland, a distinguished Naval commander in the reign of Elizabeth I and one of her favorites. Clad in rich velvet and ermine, the Duke exudes an air of authority and nobility, his piercing gaze fixed on the horizon, embodying the spirit of a great naval leader. By his side, the Duchess of York, later to become Queen Mary, enchants in a stunning costume of a lady of the Court of Marguerite of Valois, wife of Henry of Navarre (1572). The hero of Ivry (1590), Henry of Navarre, was a pivotal figure in French history, and his queen's elegant and refined attire reflects the opulence and sophistication of the French court. Queen Mary's intricately designed gown, adorned with lace, pearls, and precious stones, captures the essence of the era, while her demure expression and poised demeanor showcase her grace and elegance. The Devonshire House Historical Costume Ball was a grand affair, attended by the most prominent figures of the time, who came together to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria's reign. This photograph, a testament to the grandeur and splendor of the event, offers a glimpse into the past, transporting us back to an era of opulence, history, and royalty.
