A STUNNING bust of the Queen will be on display at a popular venue after being loaned out by an award-winning artist.

The bronze bust, which weighs more than 60kg, will be delighting visitors at the Harwich Museum for the Queen’s Jubilee.

The sculpture captures the monarch in evening wear with a sash over her shoulder and the insignia of the Order of the Garter.

She is also wearing Queen Alexandra's Kokoshnik Tiara, a diamond headpiece forming part of the Queen's collection.

David Whittle, curator of Harwich Museum, said: “We are honoured to be in a position to offer the people of Tendring the opportunity to see this magnificent sculpture for a limited time only.

“The bust is the centerpiece of our display to honour Her Majesty for her Platinum Jubilee.”

This is one of the two Queen busts created by renowned sculptor Antony Dufort.

The first was unveiled by the Queen to celebrate her time as the longest serving Captain-General of the Honorable Artillery Company in London on June 1, 2016.

Back in 2007, Dufort has also cast a 7ft 6in bronze statue of Baroness Thatcher.

She was the first ex-Prime Minister to be honoured in such a way in the House of Commons.
