This picture is in the Henry VIII Banqueting Hall at Leeds Castle. The hall was created for the visit of Catherine of Aragon on 22nd May, 1520 when he was on route  for Dover to embark for Henry’s historic meeting with Francis I of France, known as the Field of the Cloth of Gold.

Fashion has certainly changed a lot since Henry’s day :-)

    Leeds Castle — aaah, memories! I visited there once a long time ago… it really is a beautiful place indeed! :)

  2. Ah yes, tights and jerkins and floor length velvet gowns. . . I wonder if they will ever come back the way bell bottoms and mini skirts did?

    Nice picture, too!
