Abstract / Summary

This chapter considers the origins of the Court Circular as a means of disseminating royal style, specifically the clothing worn by Queen Alexandra. It examines the embedded knowledge of dress and fabrics in the public consciousness and the print descriptions of formal clothing shared with the general public. The image making of Queen Alexandra and her canny use of dress as a means of cementing her public popularity played out through these descriptions.
