Pencil, watercolour and bodycolour | 23.0 x 36.3 cm (whole object) | RCIN 919996

Victoria and Albert were welcomed to France on 2 September 1843 by Louis-Philippe and his wife, Queen Marie-Amélie. Louis-Philippe (wearing red trousers and a sash) turns to Albert standing beside him as Victoria and Marie-Amélie greet one another. Their clasped hands, the focus of this scene, symbolise the close friendship that Louis-Philippe hoped to enjoy with Britain and its monarch.
