Henry VIII is married to Katherine of Aragon at Greenwich Palace. He is 17 years old and she is aged 23 years old. When he was 10 years old he attended Katherine's first wedding to his Brother Arthur, Prince of Wales. As she claimed to have remained a virgin during her first marriage, Catherine wore white with her hair loose - a symbol of virginity.
This portrait is displayed at Hampton Court Palace as part of the Henry’s Women exhibition in Henry VIII’s Council Chamber from 10 April 2009.
