This is based on a coronation portrait photo of the Queen by Cecil Beaton. The backdrop he used is a huge image of the interior of the Henry VII chapel in Westminster Abbey. The backdrop picture is taken from below, while the Queen is photographed from slightly above, which creates a clash of perspectives that works quite well.
