Oliver Everett is Librarian Emeritus of the Royal Library, Windsor Castle. The Royal Collection is one of the finest art collections in the world. It comprises over 485,000 objects which have been accumulated by the British Royal Family from the 16th century. The Royal Library is more like a remarkable and fascinating museum of the British Monarchy than a traditional library. It contains perhaps the finest collection of Old Master drawings in the world (including 600 by Leonardo da Vinci).Mr. Everett's experience of working with the British Royal Collection and with the Royal Family, enables him to lecture with great insight and from personal involvement. His talks are illustrated with many beautifully coloured slides of the finest items in the Royal Collection. Oliver was in the British Diplomatic Service, 1967-81. He was Assistant Private Secretary to Prince Charles, Prince of Wales, 1978-80; and Private Secretary to Diana, Princess of Wales, 1981-83.
