On February 7th, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall will visit the Charles Dickens Museum on the morning of the bicentenary. Their Royal Highnesses will see some of the world’s finest Dickens-related collections in the only surviving London home of Dickens. A special programme has been put together for the Royal visitors, including a private reading by Emmy-award winning actress Gillian Anderson who played Miss Havisham in the BBC’s recent adaptation of ‘Great Expectations’. This is the first Royal visit to the Museum since 1957 and marks the commencement of the Museum’s bicentenary redevelopment programme for 2012. (source)
