The Palace of Holyroodhouse announces D-Day exhibition

Date Posted: 08/10/2015

The Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh will host a commemorative D-Day exhibition from 15th January to 28th March, entitled The Last of the Tide.

Inspired and commissioned by HRH The Prince of Wales following his attendance at the 70th anniversary of D-Day in Normandy in 2014, the images pay tribute to some of the men who took part in the Allied invasion of Normandy on 6th June 1944.

The Last of the Tide will display 12 portraits of D-Day veterans wearing their medals and in some instances their regimental berets. All of them served in regiments with which The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall have a formal affiliation.

Each portrait has been created by a different artist, among them Jonathan Yeo, James Lloyd, Ishbel Myerscough and Stuart Pearson Wright.

The Last of the Tide is included as part of a visit to the Palace of Holyroodhouse; group discounts are available to parties of 15 or more.
