Queen Victoria's entry into Paris, 18 August 1855

dated 1855

Pencil, watercolour and bodycolour on buff paper | 34.1 x 49.7 cm (whole object) | RCIN 920060

Here Victoria and Albert enter Paris, through a grand triumphal arch and amidst cheering crowds, at the start of their ten-day sojourn in August 1855. But after delays to their journey it was in fact nearing twilight when the procession took place, and many spectators were unhappy after a long wait to see the British royal family.
