Fun With Flora...



One more statue from Scotland to show today, featuring Flora Macdonald (alongside my friend Em C!). The statue is located just in front of Inverness Castle, and Flora gained notoriety for helping Bonnie Prince Charlie dress up as a maid and escape the Hanoverian, as he was on the run following the defeat of the Jacobite uprising by the Hanoverian army in the 1750s. I couldn’t see the current bonnie Prince Charlie dressed up in drag to tell you the truth…

Good to see you're back, Statue John!! Great pic!! P.S. The current Prince Charles doesn't even look good dressed up as a man! Maybe Whatsername would!!
