Prince Charles visited Houghton Hall near King's Lynn, Norfolk today, where he spoke of his fond memories of visiting the hall during childhood trips to the nearby Sandringham Estate.
He spent nearly an hour viewing the Houghton Revisited exhibition, a collection of 70 paintings, including masterpieces by Rembrandt, Velasquez, Rubens, Van Dyck, Murillo and Poussin, from the collection brought together from museums around the word.
The collection belonged to Sir Robert Walpole, who became Britain's first prime minister in 1721. The paintings were returned to Houghton this week and the Prince was said to be delighted to have the opportunity to view them in their intended setting.
