This year Hampton Court has several exhibitions based on Henry VIII's life in connection to the 500th anniversary of his accession. Amongst these is an exhibition entitled "Henry's Women", which focuses on his wives and daughters. Some of the paintings included have not been shown before to the public, namely the paintings of Katherine Parr and Anne of Cleves. The exhibition begins on the 10th April. There is still some uncertainty regarding the identity of one of the paintings - the portrait allegedly of Katherine Howard. Currently the National Portrait Gallery has the portrait labelled as "Unknown woman, formerly known as Katherine Howard", and there have been suggestions that the sitter is actual a member of the Cromwell family, more specifically Thomas Cromwell's daughter-in-law, Elizabeth Seymour. Ultimately the sitter's identity is still not known, although I tend to think it is not Katherine. For more information on the exhibit:

We asked members of Historic Royal Palaces staff which of Henry VIII's wives as the best. Here, Ian Franklin, State Apartment Warder at Hampton Court Palace - and one of its resident ghost experts! - argues the unfairness of branding Katherine Howard as merely the ultimate Tudor bimbo. When beheaded at the Tower of London in 1542, for premarital sexual activity and alleged marital infidelity, Henry VIIIs rose without a thorn was nothing more than the victim of circumstance. Besides, her status as Hampton Court Palaces most important ex-wife is secured by the fact that according to some people at least her ghost is still there! In 2009 Hampton Court Palace will be home to rarely seen 16th-century portraits of each of the women in Henry VIII's life mother, sisters daughters and wives - and will be joined by evocative objects intimately connected to their fate.
