does as much as possible to stop deterioration before it occurs whereas treatment conservation
works directly on the piece to stabilise and slow this deterioration down. At Historic Royal Palaces this is carried out either on-site in our studios or by commissioning treatment specialists.
In particular we specialise in tapestries, state furnishings and we have a large costume collection based at Kensington Palace. Objects vary from early 16th-century tapestries of Henry VIII right up to modern-day royal costume.
