Albert Edward, Prince of Wales, the future Edward VII (1841-1910)

Susan Durant (1827-1873)



Albert Memorial Chapel, Windsor

This is one of the medallion portraits of the princes and princess of the royal family which crown the tarsia panels of the nave. The prince seems to be wearing the sash of the Order of the Garter, to which he had been admitted at the age of 17 (see Ridley 42), over his left shoulder.

Cropped from a photograph of Plate XLVIII in the Davisons' book, by Jacqueline Banerjee.
