The Royal Collection is one of the largest art collections in the world. Running to more than a million objects, it is a unique and valuable record of the personal tastes of Kings and Queens over the past 500 years.
Every member of a family knows how special it is to inherit a much loved piece of art or jewellery.
The royal family is no different, except that the value of their pieces may be a little higher than the average!
Queen Elizabeth II has been the custodian of the royal collection and it is wonderful to see the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duchess of Cambridge wearing some of the spectacular pieces of jewellery that The Queen has shared with them.
Your clients will be up close and personal with the incredible Crown Jewels in the Tower of London, learning from the experts who protect them on behalf of The Queen.
And they can meet the hugely talented sculptor Frances Segelman who has added to the royal collection with her brilliant sculptures of the key royals.Enquire about Experience
