From all at Acorn Stairlifts, congratulations to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on this, her Sapphire Jubilee.

Today, February 6th, marks 65 years since our Queen’s accession to the throne and is the first time a reigning British monarch has reached this ‘sapphire’ anniversary.

In recognition, this portrait by photographer David Bailey has been reissued. Taken in 2014, it shows Her Majesty wearing sapphire jewellery given to her as a wedding gift in 1947 by her father, King George VI. The Queen is expected to spend today with family members at her Sandringham Estate in Norfolk.
