What great news, a baby boy born to The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge! The baby named George, third in line to the throne, will be our King, one day.
With that in mind, I was reminded of a piece of artwork (by Alan Cockcroft) made in 1977 for a Promenade feature called Kings and Queens of England. It shows eighteen monarchs starting on the top left with Henry IV and ending on the far right with our last King George VI. This is a great record of Englands historical past and something we are very proud to have!
……..Perhaps in years to come there will be another picture in our Illuminations collection showing the future King George?
