Glittering crowns and jewels british royals have worn. (Part 1)
From the moment I first began my research into Henry VII and Elizabeth of York, I took the fact that the typically frugal Henry spent a lavish amount on Elizabeth’s funeral as a sure sign of devotion to her.
Except I now feel wretchedly sad because apparently Henry and Elizabeth went through the same extensive ceremony for the first child that they lost, Elizabeth Tudor, who died when she was only three of atrophy.
The large sum of £318 (£155,479.74 in today’s money) was spent on her funeral and Henry erected a small tomb to his daughter in the abbey made from Purbeck and black marble. On top of the monument is a finely polished slab of black Lydian, upon which were placed inscriptions to Elizabeth and her effigy of copper gilt, both of which are now lost. (x)
Of course our Henry would dole it out for his family, they were everything to him
Prince Carl Philip had another racing competition this weekend. He wasn’t very successful because he crashed with his car once again. True supporters fiancé Sofia Hellqvist and King Carl Gustaf were there to support him.
The kiss of Sofia and Carl Gustaf is so cute! + Looks like Sofia is dyeing her hair lighter.
What the hell are you girls doing? I’m King-ing here!
