Hampton Court Palace – See the lost dress of Elizabeth I – The Bacton Altar Cloth

It seems likely that the embroidered silk cloth found its way to Bacton by association with Blanche Parry, Elizabeth’s most faithful servant and almost life-long companion. It is likely that it was sent to Bacton by the Queen or her ladies-in-waiting in memory of Blanche.
The Bacton Church Altar Cloth is a rare survival of an Elizabethan dress worn by Elizabeth I. Also as part of the exhibition the iconic Rainbow Portrait will also be on display at Hampton Court Palace.
