In Christian VII’s Palace there is also a nice royal museum, and that one has been extended with a real Fabergé Chamber. The Chamber opened its doors on 8 February 2020 and on display […]

Scottish exhibition – A Royal Wedding: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex

Eugenie and Jack’s lovely wedding exhibition at Windsor

Having enjoyed the wedding of Princess Eugenie of York and Jack Brooksbank on TV/Internet last year, I was glad to see their wedding exhibition at Windsor Castle lately. Unfortunately the exhibition can only be seen at Windsor between 1 March and 22 April 2019 and will not be shown at any of the other palaces. […]
