From Mrs Jennifer Miller

Sir: Roger Guedalla is quite mistaken in thinking that the Royal Collection is only on display in the Queen's gallery at Buckingham Palace (Letters, 2 March).

The contents of the State Rooms there are now on view to the public in the summer: the principal part of the collection is also open to the public at Windsor Castle, Kensington, Kew, Hampton Court and Holyroodhouse palaces, the Tower and Osborne House.

Many items are on indefinite loan to the British Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, and the National Galleries in London, Edinburgh and Cardiff. Loans are frequently made to special exhibitions both at home and overseas, and innumerable reproductions from the collection have been allowed.

Yours faithfully,

Jennifer Miller
