Duke of Edinburgh visits The Keepers House at The Royal Academy | Event Photography

The Duke of Edinburgh was guest of honour at the newly opened The Keeper's House; the Royal Academy of Art's new home for artists and art lovers. Tucked in the corner of the Royal Academy's courtyard, the Keeper's House provides a new social space for all, be they artists or 'art curious'. Having returned this 19th century town house to its former glory, a new restaurant, bar, lounge and secret garden have been created in the heart of Mayfair. They are open to the public from 4pm daily till late, with all day access for Friends of the RA.  The Duke was received by 50 specially invited guests and Friends of the RA who were gathered across the different spaces of the House.
