The Queen visited the Royal Academy of Arts in London to mark the completion of a major redevelopment of the site on March 20th. Touring and officially opening the Burlington Gardens building, she met those involved in the design and construction process, which has been completed in the Royal Academy’s 250th anniversary year, and unveiled the first painting to be installed in the new spaces, ahead of the full public opening of the new Royal Academy on 19th May. The Queen also viewed the Royal Academy’s current exhibition, Charles I: King and Collector, which reunites for the first time the masterpieces of a magnificent collection, including major works loaned by the Royal Collection.
