On October 19, 2011, the Princess Royal opened the Antarctic photo exhibition at the Queen’s Gallery in London. This exhibit:
…marks the centenary of Captain Robert Falcon Scott’s expedition to the South Pole, tells a story of heroism, bravery – and ultimately of tragedy, that has mesmerised generations.
It brings together a collection of the photographs presented to King George V by the official photographers from Scott’s expedition of 1910-13 and Ernest Shackleton’s expedition in 1914-16, and unique artefacts, such as the flag given to Scott by Queen Alexandra and taken to the Pole.
