'Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobites'

Video: National Museum of Scotland

There's an excellent new exhibition at the National Museum of Scotland here in Edinburgh on Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobite movement. I wrote a review of the show for the Financial Times, here. It was a pleasure, of course, to see some old friends on display, including the Allan Ramsay portrait of Charles (below), and the La Tour pastel of his brother, Henry, Cardinal York. I always remember fondly the time I had the former on my mantelpiece for a day.
