Update to Palace Secrets (blog below)

I emailed the curator who took us on the palace tour, and received the following email after posting my blog on Palace Secrets and King Henry's Bed: The terra cotta head of a lady is not a representation of Elizabeth I but is believed to be of an eastern monarch, possibly Cleopatra. The roundel probably comes from the Holbein gate which was demolished in 1754.
Thanks, readers. I just wanted to be correct on the facts.

It's not how I would envision Cleopatra but thanks for the update!
