The oval three-quarter length portrait in the Royal Collection was painted for Queen Victoria in June 1857, at the same time as a portrait of Prince Frederick William of Prussia, the Princess’s betrothed. The Queen wrote ‘Winterhalter has done a beautiful picture of Vicky, & is making an excellent head of Fritz’ Journal, 26, June, 1857. This is the earliest of four portraits of the Queen’s eldest daughters. This print precedes the publication of Samuel Cousins’s engraving in March, 1858.
