Queen Louise of the Belgians wears a copy of the dress worn by Jeanne d'Aragon in Raphael's 1518 portrait of her. Posted to the Alexander Palace Time Machine Discussion Forum by KarlandZita on 22 February 2009.
The Raphael artwork shown in the previous image was around, probably in nearby France, so Queen Louise was able to wear a great copy of it.
