A whirl through 16th and 17th century sartorial style, held in the stately surroundings of HRH HQ. Find out how even armour had its own trends and flourishes (a 13 year old Henry, Prince of Wales wore a set cast in doublets and breeches style) and learn Tudor make-up trickery including the practise of sporting black fabric patches stuck to the face with saliva and adhesive, to emphasise the pale complexions of the leisured classes and to conceal blemishes. Sneaky.
