Long To Reign Over Me

‘Long To Reign Over Me’ is a project built around the fictional character of ‘Chip Windsor’. I envisioned him as distant relative of the royal family. Throughout the project I play with the idea that he’s looking back at the present day royals and in particular the Queen, as a style icon. I wanted to take aspects of her everyday and royal attire and mix them with a slightly punk/skater style. This characterisation of him as a rebellious royal lead me to look at royal etiquette, in particular not being able to wear denim, and break them. Overall, I wanted this to be loving, humorous, jab at the royal family, from one of their own.
