Lady Carnarvon’s Coronation Robe

25th July, 2019

The RSN’s Embroidery Studio recently worked on the restoration and conservation of a very special robe worn by Lady Carnarvon to King George V’s Coronation in 1911.  The Carnarvon family live at Highclere Castle which you may recognise as the set of Downtown Abbey!

This historic garment will be on display at a special event at Highclere Castle on the 7 and 8 September called Castle Tours, Costumes and Cocktails
