The Duck d’Orleans (named after the former royal resident of Orleans House) has become a regular visitor to Orleans House Gallery IN Twickenham and is gaining quite a following.

He arrives early in the morning and sporadically returns throughout the day to his archway perch 30 feet up, where he surveys his new kingdom and quacks contentedly.

He still appears to be solo, and so far there has not been any sign of the Duckchess.
