Meet Princess Sophia, Electress of Hanover, aged 17. This saucy little minx kept me company at the National Portrait Gallery whilst I waited for a friend to finish work so we could have a Christmas dinner (but minus the pudding, brussels sprouts, turkey….okay, we just went for dinner and it was Christmas time….ish).
Back to Sophia. I’m not sure about what she was like in real life, but as busts go, she is the one in the gallery who looks like she would know a good time when she found it. I think I’ll have what she’s having.
