Public Art Commission – Statues of HRH Queen Elizabeth II

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth's Test Valley Connections

Both statues are similar in concept, linking both ends of the borough, but with key differences making the pieces unique.

The designs on the back of her robes and the locations of the artwork will reflect the relationship she had with Test Valley.

In Romsey, she’ll be depicted as a young monarch - reflecting her connection with Broadlands where she spent her honeymoon, and her position as Defender of the Faith and Supreme Governor of the Church of England.

In Andover, she’ll be presented later in her reign and there is an opportunity to reflect her position as Commander-in-Chief of the British Armed Forces, linking with the town’s military connections.
