Pencil, watercolour, bodycolour and gum arabic | 24.8 x 35.0 cm (whole object) | RCIN 920050

In 1854 Albert visited Boulogne to inspect troops stationed there, further demonstrating the Franco-British alliance against Russia during the Crimean War. The emphasis here is on the cheering people welcoming the prince. Albert commissioned this work as a Christmas gift for Victoria, who had not accompanied him.
