The Palace of Holyroodhouse: the Prince Consort's Sitting Room and Dressing Room


RCIN 919571

Queen Victoria first stayed at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in 1850 and spent a night or two in the Palace each year on the journey to or from Balmoral. The former royal apartments were redecorated and the interiors recorded by Greig, an Edinburgh-based artist. This watercolour shows the room used by the Prince Consort, with a shower cubicle in the corner. This room was the King's Bedchamber in the seventeenth-century Palace. Commissioned by Queen Victoria
