Our first Prime Minister's (Robert Walpole) grandson fell into huge gaming debts and the family pictures were sold to Catherine the Great of Russia, where they have been in the Hermitage Museum for many years.
Now, almost unbelievably, they are to be displayed in their original locations at Houghton Hall from 17 May to 29 September this year.
Anyone visiting the UK during this period might like to consider a visit.
