Princess Diana’s speech on HIV (x)
I toooooootally agree with you. Catherine’s still got it and it’s not like anything that she wears is inappropriate, just young and fitting for someone who has a kick ass body like hers. The only think I wish she’d fix is weigh her skirts so people would have less things to talk badly about her, other than that I love her style as we all know :)
Heyy thanks for asking <3

Aw heyyyy thanks for asking!
6. Do you have any strange phobias?
I don’t think it’s strange but I’m just freaking TERRIFIED of spiders. Like I’m thinking about them and talking about them right now and I’m panicking. Oh god. Also, once it was 3am and I thought about how it was just by the grace of God that spiders didn’t have wings and how terrifying it would be if they did and well let’s just say I didn’t sleep that night. At all.
7. What’s your religion?

The National Portrait Gallery has released a photograph of its patron HRH The Duchess of Cambridge being shown the Van Dyck Self-portrait it is campaigning with the Art Fund to save for the nation. The Duchess was given a private view of the portrait, on display at the Gallery, with director Sandy Nairne, during The Portrait Galaon the11 February.
As the Government export bar has been extended to allow a further five months of fundraising to prevent the portrait from going overseas to a private collection, the Gallery and the Art Fund have announced a current total of more than £3.5 million including over 6,000 individual contributions received from supporters both nationally and internationally.
The total amount includes a six-figure pledge from the Garfield Weston Foundation and multiple five-figure gifts from an anonymous individual supporter, who has significantly boosted funds at each crucial stage of the campaign. This follows the recent pledge of £1 million from The Monument Trust, the largest single gift yet given to the campaign.
The campaign began with an initial £1.2 million raised from the Gallery and the Art Fund including a grant of £500,000 towards the acquisition from the Art Fund (with an additional £150,000 offered towards a nationwide tour of the painting) and £700,000 from the Gallery’s Portrait Fund and acquisition budget.
The National Portrait Gallery was given an initial three months to acquire Van Dyck’s exceptional Self-portrait (1640-1) priced at £12.5 million, following a temporary Government export bar (issued on Thursday 14 November 2013) to prevent it from being taken overseas. That export bar expired on 14 February 2014 and has now been extended to 13 July 2014.
The painting has been in British private collections for nearly 400 years but has been sold to a private collector who now wishes to take it abroad. This is the only chance a museum or a gallery in the United Kingdom has of acquiring the masterpiece.
The Gallery and the Art Fund have also launched two new social media initiatives in support of the Save Van Dyck fundraising campaign, a Thunderclap aiming to attract a minimum of 250 sign-ups by Friday 28 February and a cut-out of Van Dyck’s frame that supporters can add to their social media profiles as a Twibbon.
