Lady, formerly called Lady Jane Grey by ? (Collection of The Lord Hastings, on loan to the Seaton Delaval Hall - Seaton Sluice, Northumberland, UK)

The Web site Tudor Tattler has this about the portrait, "Here, Lady Jane is shown in a heavy damask gown adorned with silver thread and jewels. Though a heavy fabric, it is made almost "girly" and "fun" with its pink and cream swirls.

Aside: This is a portrait identified as that of Lady Jane Grey, the unfortunate "Nine Days Queen." However, the identity of the sitter is unknown.

I believe that it is Jane. It does bear a resemblance to Mary Tudor/Suffolk, Jane's Grandmother. This is, in fact, my favorite portrait of Jane. Unlike many Tudor portraits, I feel that the artist really captured Jane's features, making her appear "real" rather than romanticized, as many portraits are want to do."

Lady meg has this about the portrait on Wikipedia, "The "Melton Constable Portrait" of Queen Katherine Parr. According to the website "Some Grey Matter", this portrait owned by Lord Hastings and now at Seaton Delaval, Norfolk, is a seventeenth-century copy of a sixteenth-century original formerly in the Royal Collection but lost in the dispersals of 1651-52. Though long thought to depict Jane Grey, it has recently been relabeled by the National Trust as Katherine Parr."
