Marilyn MacGregor,

“I imagine that you caught a glimpse of the new portrait of Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge – it caused quite a stir when it was unveiled last week. My blog post puts this new Royal Portrait in historical context, with a look at a few prominent Royal Portraits in history and some entertaining, puzzling, quirky, interesting recent additions to the Windsor Family gallery, including one of Prince Philip as you’d never expect to see him!”
