      The Heartbreak of Princesses

      An illustrated talk telling both the story of two little girls who are portrayed in portraits at Raynham and the process of gradually restoring those portraits. The girls are daughters of Charles I whose childhood was blighted by the Civil War and the family tragedy of their father being beheaded.  

      Lady Townshend, in a short preface, will describe the life of the two small princesses and Emma Boyce Gore, painting conservator at Kiffy Stainer Hutchins & Co, will show how the paintings were cleaned of overpaint slowly revealing the original masterpieces underneath.

      The restoration is work in progress and there are many images to accompany this fascinating and moving talk.

      Drinks and light refreshments are included in the price of the ticket.The Marchioness Townshend
