Albert Memorial Chapel, Windsor

Princess Beatrice was Victoria and Albert's ninth and last child, and fifth daughter. Seen here in one of the medallion portraits of the royal family in the nave, she would later marry Prince Henry of Battenberg, and is remembered for having edited and transcribed her mother's diaries, filling 111 books in the process (see Ridley 479).
