Kate Opens Treasures

Yesterday Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, officially unveiled the new Treasures Cadogan Gallery at the Natural History Museum in London (CLICK). Here is Kate being shown round by Special Collections Manager Judith Magee. The Treasures Cadogan Gallery in Central Hall showcases 22 of the museum's most prized items, from Charles Darwin's pigeons to Guy the Gorilla and including Archaeopteryx, the most valuable fossil in the museum's extensive collection. Blown glass models of sea creatures are dazzling. CLICK for a musical slide show by Paul Kerley with voiceover by Project Director Meg MacDonald. Treasures opens to us on Friday.
