According to Westminster Abbey, the window will be known as “The Queen’s Window” and will be installed in the north transept of the Abbey, replacing one of the church’s few remaining clear windows.
Beloved British pop artist David Hockney will design a stained-glass window in Westminster Abbey designed in honor of the Queen. The window will be unveiled in June of 2018 to coincide with the opening of the Queen’s Jubilee Gallery in the church. Situated in the abbey’s north transept, the window—which measures 6ft x 20ft—is being funded by two anonymous benefactors. It will be known as “The Queen’s window.” [link]
