A couple of previously-released books have a US edition coming this month, starting with The Mythology of the ‘Princes in the Tower’ by the late John Ashdown-Hill. It was released over the summer in the UK and is out on November 1 in the US.

Continuing Exhibitions

The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston is hosting an exhibition organized by the National Portrait Gallery, London entitled Tudors to Windsors: British Royal Portraits from Holbein to Warhol which opened on October 7, 2018 and runs through January 27, 2019. (And I’m thrilled that finally something is coming to my neck of the woods – I’m only about 2.5 hours from Houston so I expect to get a chance to go see it over the holidays!)

‘We are Bess’ opened at Hardwick Hall on October 3 and runs through November 4, then will re-open from February 16 to June 2 next year. The exhibition will also be available online – something I always appreciate for those of us who can’t easily visit in person.

Royal Sudeley 1000 – Trials, Triumphs and Treasures – Sudeley Castle has refurbished their exhibition rooms for their 2018 open season that runs from March 5 to December 21.
