Buckingham Palace Issues Significant Update Amid Kate Middleton Cancer Battle

Kate Middleton is receiving an amazing honour in the most beautiful way as Buckingham Palace is set to unveil a collection of previously unseen royal photographs in its latest exhibition at The King’s Gallery, now renamed in honour of King Charles III.

This historic exhibition, titled “Royal Portraits: A Century of Photography,” will showcase over 150 items spanning from the 1920s to the present day.

The display marks the debut of personal photographs from the Royal Collection, offering a unique glimpse into 100 years of royal photography.

Curator Alessandro Nasini shared with GB News, “We are going from very private and personal [photographs] all the way to [King Charles III’s] coronation portraits, so you’ve got a full range of material.”

Intimate family moments, such as a never-before-seen image of four royal mothers—Queen Elizabeth II, Princess Margaret, Princess Alexandra, and the Duchess of Kent—holding their newborn babies, will be on display alongside a private handwritten letter from Princess Margaret to her sister, Queen Elizabeth II.

The exhibition will also feature a more relaxed engagement photograph of the Prince and Princess of Wales, as well as a picture from their wedding day.

Never-before-seen proofs, sent to the Royal Family to choose their favourite images, provide a behind-the-scenes insight into how iconic royal portraits were created.

A striking highlight of the exhibition is an image of the Princess of Wales that bears a “striking resemblance” to an 1864 portrait of Alexandra, Princess of Wales, by Franz Xaver Winterhalter.

This exhibition not only honours Kate Middleton but also celebrates the rich history and intimate moments of the British Royal Family.
