After seeing this portrait of the real Lucrezia Borgia, the striking similarity in bone structure, and huge almond shaped eyes, made it perfectly clear why a casting director would find Holliday perfect for the role...
Not only grown up but a fashion diva as well...lovely..

Sincere merci beaucoup to Musa for reminding me of the following interview - Richard was asked which historic figure he'd most like to take out for a drink, his reply was Lucretia Borgia...

Is the following news additional evidence that sweet things come from Leicestershire?;) Fruit cake??..wonder if that's considered a traditional wedding cake. Splendid idea to have the 4 national flowers of the British Isles as cake decorations.
My niece's wedding will have an Irish theme - must ask if her baker will make tiny green-tinted-frosting shamrocks sprinkled among the other flower designs. Her bridal dress is snowy white with a lovely shade of green embroidered down the center of her laced back, flowing into a delicate green design on the chapel train. Bridesmaids wearing black column floor length dresses(it's an evening wedding) with a matching band of green along the strapless bodice. http://news.sky.com/skynews/Article/201009115960789
