Robert Saint-Leger Posted March 4, 2016 Share Posted March 4, 2016 Prince Rupert resided, while in London, in a collection of well appointed rooms that carried a theme of Rhenish design, which created a rather interesting contrast to the bold Gothic architecture, for this was one of the older parts of the palace. The Duke held only modest accommodations at Whitehall, his main residence being at Windsor Castle. His common law wife Peg Hughes also resided here during the season. Upon entrance the visitor would note the rose wood and the many roses about the room. The rest of the interior basked in masculinity, military shields, banners and rifles, collections of weapons simply everywhere. The visitor would await the Duke's pleasure in the receiving room, where the deeper part of the apartment revealed a study, a drawing room for ladies and two bedrooms as well as rooms for servants. Beverley arrived a few hours after receiving the missive, dressed in his uniform, which was not odd but not his usual either. Truth be told, he did not have that many of his sets of clothes with him, which had resulted in much more uniform-wearing over the recess as well. The bright scarlet of it made him look even more pale with his dark hair and dark hazel eyes. He seemed worn and tired, with bluish tinge under his eyes. Although hard to notice for someone who saw him nearly every day as Rupert did, that he had lost a bit of weight was still somewhat evident by the fit of his clothes. Any who had not seen him over the last few months would definitely notice. As was usual, the viscount was allowed in without comment. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
