But now a statue in nearby George Square is accessorising.
The monument to Queen Victoria, created by Italian-born French sculptor Carlo Marochetti, was seen with an umbrella during this morning’s wet weather.
Chris Cunningham, SNP Councillor for Garscadden/Scotstounhill, tweeted a photo of Queen Victoria with her umbrella with the caption: “Spotted in George Square. New trend? Duke of Wellington watch out!”
The statue of Wellington on his horse, outside Glasgow’s Gallery of Modern Art, is regularly seen with a traffic cone adorning the Duke’s head.
