The 10-centimetre-high figure was revealed to the public at the Legoland theme park in Windsor on Thursday – just a few miles from the queen’s favourite home of Windsor Palace.

It depicts the monarch dressed in white, wearing a blue sash – the Garter Riband – and with real diamonds dotting the crown sitting atop her grey curls.

The figure, displayed in a Lego model of Buckingham Palace at the park, is not the first time that Lego has depicted the queen and other members of British royalty.

The toy company took on the Royal Wedding in 2011, creating figures of Prince William and his new wife, Catherine the Duchess of Cambridge, along with a more toned-down figure of the Queen dressed in a yellow suit and hat.

The figure of the Duchess did not feature any jewels, but her wedding dress was embellished with flowers.

Prince Harry was also depicted, with the figure made recognisable by the ginger hair beneath his military cap.

The queen’s diamond jubilee celebrations will feature a festival of boats on the river Thames and the lighting of more than 2,000 beacons around the country during the four-day public holiday beginning June 2.
