Today the Stephen Friedman Gallery in London opened the first UK solo exhibition of new work by US artist Jennifer Rubbell (title link). Its publicity-grabbing centerpiece is this rather goofy waxwork of Prince William by French sculptor Daniel Druet, which Ms Rubbell calls Engagement. Her idea is that visitors can don a replica of Kate Middleton's engagement ring, which is attached to the prince's sleeve, and take her place beside the prince for a photo. She believes that every woman harbours the secret desire to marry a prince. Projection? CLICK for a BBC News video of Ms Rubbell showing off her idea. Ladies, you have until 5 March to get snapped.
