As part of the BBC’s celebration of the Queen’s diamond jubilee, a special edition of ‘Antiques Roadshow’ on June 10th featured a dolls’ house with royal connections.
Called the Little Welsh Cottage, the dolls’ house is a replica of a cottage built for Princess Elizabeth when she was six years old.
The real cottage stood in the grounds of the Royal Lodge at Windsor and was unusual in being constructed to a 2/5th scale, making it the most amazing playhouse any six year old ever enjoyed.
You can see the dolls’ house for yourself on the BBC website (in the UK) and learn more about the story behind it.
It appears at around the three minute mark.
