Caroline De Guitaut, curator at The Royal Collection Trust in London, is the author of three books on the work of Peter Carl Fabergé — Fabergé’s Animals: A Royal Farm in Miniature, Royal Fabergé, and Diamonds: A Jubilee Celebration. Basically, she’s kind of big deal when it comes to the The House of Fabergé, and she’ll be on-hand Feb. 25 to discuss just that in a Distinguished Lecture: Carl Fabergé: Imperial Jeweler to the Tsars.

De Guitaut is an authority on the work of Fabergé and manages the Royal Family’s personal jewel collection, in addition to inhabiting an illustrious space as The Person Who Has Touched Kate Middleton’s Wedding Dress.
