Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip - Silver Jubilee (1977)

H.M. The Queen in formal evening gown; Prince Philip as Admiral of the Fleet

These Bisque models of The Queen and Prince Philip were issued from May 1977, as a Limited Edition of 500 models, to mark the Silver Jubilee celebrations for the Queen’s 25 year reign.  This model was the third in a series of three, entitled "Three Famous British Queens".  

The Queen is wearing formal evening dress while Prince Philip is wearing the uniform of the Admiral of the Fleet, and was made with his right arm angled as shown, allowing him to be posed with his arm on the back of the chair, as shown. 

The chair is a replica of one used in an official Jubilee portrait of the Queen, and was only available with this (bisque porcelain) version of the Jubilee Queen.

HM Queen Elizabeth II cost £36.50, ($96.50), and came with the chair, (which replicated one used in an official Silver Jubilee portrait)

Prince Philip was issued as a separate doll, (the royal couple were not issued as a pair), in October 1977, and was £34.75 ($89.75).

Production of these dolls was discontinued after 30th October 1977, (though unsold stock may have been available for sale after that date)


P/415 The Queen and P/410 Prince Philip are the  hard plastic versions of these dolls.

Important Announcement


My dear wife, Christine, passed away on the 8th December, 2021after 8 weeks in hospital. I was by her side, when she slipped away from me peacefully, with no pain or suffering.


Chris had been struggling with a slow decline in health, associated with a progressive, untreatable, and ultimately terminal lung disease, and finally succumbed to her old adversary, Pneumonia.


We had been friends for 55 years, together as a couple for 50 years, and married just a month short of 48 years, when she died.   


This website was Chris's idea, and I did all the technical stuff, to make it work.   After news of Chris's passing reached her close friends in the doll collecting world, I was deeply touched and gratified to hear their tributes to my dear wife, and I must thank them all for their kindness and support.   Ultimately, it was her doll friends that gave me the courage to continue with the website.


In the months before her eventual hospitalisation, Chris had outlined a number of additions and changes she wanted to make to the website, and it is my intention to honour those wishes, and to implement the changes we had considered, over the coming weeks and months.


I must apologise to all those who have written to us via the website, only to have your emails go unanswered.   Unfortunately, the email system had been hacked aroung the time Chris was going into hospital, and many emails must have been lost, as a result.


As you might imagine, I felt completely broken by Chris's loss, and it is only now, almost 22 months after her passing, that I have felt strong enough to even look at the website again.   


My aim is to continue with the website, and to implement Chris's aims for her many new ideas as soon as I can.   In the meantime, I have hopefully got the email system sorted out, and I will attempt to answer any enquiries as soon as I can, and to send replies with the same high degree of accuracy that a reply from Chris would have had.


From now on, I will be flying solo, whilst my co-pilot and guide will be soaring much higher, (though she is always in my heart, and in my thoughts).


My thanks to all our website visitors for your continued support


Dave (also known as Arthur), and Chris, (my lost love, Guinevere)
