Royal fans have been given a first look at a statue of Queen Elizabeth that’s currently under construction – and strictly under wraps.

The statue is set to be uncovered just in time for Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022 and is being created by artist Richard Bossons, who is part of York Minster cathedral’s masonry team.

It will stand two metres tall and will weigh out to about two tonnes.

Bossons admitted to the BBC that the sculpture had been challenging to design.

“The statue needs to be part of the fabric, not a distraction from it, yet it also has to have the poise and presence befitting of the Queen’s unique role,” he said.

“She will stand proud and resolute in her niche, welcoming worshippers and visitors alike,” Bossons added.

The statue will show the Queen dressed in Garter robes and the George IV State Diadem.

She will also be holding an orb and sceptre, to symbolise her 70-year reign on the British throne.

The Twitter York Minster took to Twitter to share more information on the design: “We’re delighted to be able to share some images showing the on-going work behind the creation of the new statue of Her Majesty The Queen, set to be installed in summer ’22.

“Designer & carver Richard Bossons showcasing his incredible skill.”

The 2022 Jubilee is set to take place from Thursday, June 2 to Sunday, June 5 in 2022.

“Throughout the year, Her Majesty and Members of the Royal Family will travel around the country to undertake a variety of engagements to mark this historic occasion culminating with the focal point of the Platinum Jubilee Weekend in June – one year from today,” Buckingham Palace revealed.

Trooping the Colour will take place on Thursday, June 2, instead of its usual Saturday date.
