Dressing according to the Royal fashion rules

The women of the Royal Family have often been looked to as leaders of fashion taste. Yet the way they dress can be constrained by their royal duties.

A new exhibition at Kensington Palace looks at this delicate balance through the wardrobes of Queen Elizabeth II, Princess Margaret and Diana, Princess of Wales.

Libby Thompson, curator at Historic Royal Palaces, talks about some of dresses in the exhibition.

Fashion Rules Restyled opens at Kensington Palace on 11 February
