Henry Fitzroy, Duke of Richmond and Somerset
.
By LUCAS HORENBOUT c.1533-4
.
.
◼  Henry Fitzroy, Duke of Richmond and Somerset (1519-36), was the illegitimate son of Henry VIII by Elizabeth Blount, a lady-in-waiting to Katharine of Aragon.
.
◼  The child was officially acknowledged by the King after the early deaths of the three sons born to the Queen.
.
◼ Following his divorce from Katharine of Aragon & his subsequent marriage to Anne Boleyn, Henry VIII's attachment to Henry Fitzroy assumed a greater significance, particularly when his second wife also failed to produce a male heir.
.
◼  Appointed Knight of the Garter in 1525 & made Duke of Richmond and Somerset in the same year, Henry Fitzroy was given several important positions, including that of Lord Lieutenant of Ireland.
.
◼  His education was entrusted to the distinguished classical scholar Richard Croke, who had taught Greek to Henry VIII, & was extended by attendance at the court of Francis I in France for eleven months in 1532.
.
◼  It appears that Henry VIII contemplated making Henry Fitzroy his heir, but whatever the King's intentions may have been, the plan was spoilt by Henry Fitzroy's premature death of tuberculosis at the age of 17.
.
◼  It is possible that this miniature was painted at the time of Fitzroy's marriage in 1534 to Mary Howard, daughter of the third Duke of Norfolk, Treasurer of the Household & Earl Marshal.
.
◼  The miniature is a typical work by Horenbout, whose style is detectable in the modelling of the features, the prominent shadows under the eyes & mouth, & the form of the inscription seen against a blue background. The sitter is vividly characterised in what is in essence an informal portrait, one of the first in British art, & a significant prototype for what was to prove the keynote of intimacy in the art form of the portrait miniature over successive centuries. The casual clothes, probably a nightcap & chemise, may be associated with his physical frailty.

The Duchess of Cambridge attends Christmas service with other members of the British Royal Family

There is no information about the coat’s designer, only that it was an “independent British designer. What we know is that her pumps are by Mascaró and her hat was designed by Jane Corbett. She debuted a new pair of earrings by Kiki McDonough, the “Green Amethyst” style (2600£) and the Mulberry “Bayswater” clutch in dark red (460$, available on eBay).

“Hopefully anyone watching this video does not go through what these guys have been through, what I unfortunately have been through. It is okay to talk about it. It’s okay that if you lose a child, if you lose them before they’re born, it is shit, but sharing the experiences, sharing what you’ve been through, sharing love, sharing emotion is the right way to get through it. Please, talk to people. Please, engage. @sandsunited are propbably the first who’s done it for a boy’s point of view and I’m very glad to have met this group of people. It’s never gonna be easy” - Mike Tindall, who’s wife Zara suffered two miscarriages before the birth of their second daughter Lena shared during @sandsunited’s event. ❤️ Update: one of @sandsunited’s original founding fathers, @leon.gavin just shared with me the loveliest news! “I will also like to say I’m happy to announce that my partner Eloise gave birth to our beautiful son Arlo on 31/10/18. he’s my world”

Please my lovely followers...do not believe one word of the newest headline about Meghan losing 'second aide among rumors of difficult behavior.' It makes for a catchy headline but that's all.  We have all known that Samantha Cohen's position was a temporary one with the Duchess.  Everything else written is so frivolous.  Questioning the time of her waking up, her yoga at 4:30am in one instance during the recent royal tour and her texts to royal staff are all rehashed,  yet again.  IF all of those are indeed issues that the current KP staff cannot handle, then the problem is the staff...not the Duchess.  They need to hire staff who are able to keep up with her schedule, not the other way around.  Yeesh!
