Back in May, the UK launched a $14.46 million fundraising campaign to keep an important portrait of Queen Elizabeth I in the country. Thanks to a $9.7 million grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, that goal has been met. The work, which is one of three surviving Armada portraits made to commemorate the defeat of the Spanish Armada, will go on view at the Royal Museums Greenwich in London.
