Richard Grafton's idealized representation of Edward taking counsel, from the title-page of The union of the two noble and illustre famelies of Lancastre & Yorke (1548) by Edward Hall. This is not a representation of the king attending a meeting of the institutional Privy Council. Although the image dates from the earliest years of Edward's reign it may offer an insight into the physical dimensions of the 'counsel for the estate' after 1552 (see pp. 162–6).
