The Duchess of Cambridge visited the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) on June 29th to officially open the Museum’s new entrance, courtyard and exhibition gallery on Exhibition Road.
The Duchess of Cambridge toured the V&A Exhibition Road Quarter’s new spaces, and heard about the design and unique features of the building. During the tour, she visited the Sackler Courtyard – the world’s first porcelain tiled public courtyard – the Blavatnik Hall, the V&A’s new entrance and the Sainsbury Gallery. The Duchess then attended a short reception in the Blavatnik Hall to meet guests involved in the project’s delivery, before unveiling a commemorative plaque in the Sackler Courtyard to officially mark the opening of the V&A Exhibition Road Quarter.
