Lego model of Queen Elizabeth II planned for Jubilee
Legoland in Britain will display a 10-cm high model of Queen Elizabeth II, complete with a miniature crown encrusted with real diamonds, to mark the Diamond Jubilee. Described as “one of the most valuable Lego models”, the Lego Queen will go on display this month on the balcony of a recreation of Buckingham Palace at Legoland Windsor’s Miniland. Specially commissioned by jewellery designer Dinny Hall, the tiny 1.5-cm tall crown is made from silver and contains 48 cut diamonds worth thousands of dollars. The Queen will be joined on the balcony by new figures of the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.
