During the time of Alexandra, Maria, and Mary of Teck it was the fashion for the royals to wear excessive amounts of jewelry, especially around their neck. I personally find it very beautiful to look at, but just wondering if a royal lady practicing the same fashion in 2011 would be looked down upon and viewed as tacky.
Apparently Adelaide was not very pretty in real life; but all the portraits I have seen of her she looks so beautiful.

I think Anne might be at the very far end of the table?

Henrietta Maria of France died on September 10th,1669 at the Château de Colombes, Colombes, France.


Henrietta Maria was the daughter of Henri IV of France,the widow of Charles I and mother of Charles II.Her remains were buried near her parents at the Bourbon vault at Saint Denis outside Paris.Sadly her remains were desecrated in October 1793 during the French Revolution.

What a stunning painting! I'd love to see it. I saw the Dutch Masters exhibition a few years ago and was entranced by the way the artists captured the texture of the fabrics - satins and velvets and laces - and the pearls. So beautiful!
