My visit to the “Blood Royal” Exhibition

‘Blood Royal: Picturing the Tudor Monarchy’ is a free exhibition at the Society of Antiquaries in Piccadilly, London.

The exhibition runs from 24 July to 25th August and is well worth a visit.

One of the highlights of the exhibition for me, was the chance to see the Mary Tudor portrait by Hans Eworth again.

The portrait previously featured in their 2007 exhibition, ‘Making History: Antiquaries In Britain, 1707-2007’ and as part of ‘The Real Tudors: Kings & Queens Rediscovered’ at the National Portrait Gallery in 2014-2015.
