This is in relation to an exhibition I saw today at The National Portrait Gallery.
The exhibition is called ‘Favourites’, and it is a small collection of portraits of knights of The Order Of The Garter.
Here is a quote from the blurb:
‘Throughout British history, the reigning monarch has operated a system of favouritism by which loyalty, support and achievement have been rewarded with privileges, titles and membership of exclusive groups’.
And so it goes on…
