World (from 22 Jun; p. 26) is tak­ing place at Kens­ing­ton Palace. The ex­hi­bi­tion ex­plores the princesses’ in­flu­ence on the arts, sci­ence and phi­lan­thropy. Joanna Marschner, se­nior cu­ra­tor at His­toric Royal Palaces, says: ‘Un­til now, th­ese princesses’ con­tri­bu­tions have been lit­tle un­der­stood and it’s the aim of this ex­hi­bi­tion to demon­strate how they in­flu­enced their era in the most vi­brant of ways.’
