Britain’s first black marchioness

Okay y’all. 

This is: Emma McQuiston

And as that says, she’s this first black marchioness Britain has ever had. 

But she’s not the only black royal

but THIS IS A BIG DEAL.

plus she’s getting snubbed like big time. The groom’s father didn’t even come. And she said things like: 

she has been snubbed by the British elite because of her ethnicity and background

SO REBLOG IT, CAUSE SHE’S GORGEOUS AND EVERYONE SHOULD LOVE HER.

Other rank’s coat, 1st Foot Guards, c. 1773. Surviving uniforms from the 18th century are rare, and those of ordinary soldiers are even rarer. This is one of two identical uniform coats, held in the National Army Museum and the Snowshill Wade Costume Collection, the circumstances of whose creation and the reason for their preservation are unknown.

This is rather interesting. This is an unfinished pattern for a waistcoat dating to about 1760, and it looks to have potentially been a stunning one. The material is silk, with metal thread and sequins. In the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Robert Alexander Hillingford (1828-1904) - Love sonnets

If that book were a translation of any volume of Santa Cruz de Marcenado’s
Reflexiones militares instead of the usual corny poetry, that guy would totally get me.
