HRH The Duchess of Cornwall tours ‘Waterloo: Life & Times’ with Director Helene Alexander and curator Jacob Moss

Her Royal Highness joined museum Director Mrs Hélène Alexander and curator Jacob Moss for a guided tour of the current exhibition, ‘Waterloo: Life & Times’. The Duchess also received a brief lesson in fan conservation by conservator Yuki Burt, who was busy repairing the damaged ribbon of an ivory brisé fan from the museum’s collection.

Her Royal Highness was then met for tea by Trustees and volunteers, along with artist Jane Barraclough who painted the exquisite murals in the museum’s Orangery. Before her departure, the Duchess was able to peruse the gift shop and left the museum with a few souvenirs.
