After Louise and her husband returned to England the couple resided in Kensington Palace. In 1900, the Marquess inherited his father’s dukedom, giving Princess Louise and her husband the titles of the Duke and Duchess of Argyll. The couple spent the rest of their days attending to their royal duties. They didn’t have any children and Campbell passed away on 2 May 1914; despite a strained relationship, Louise is said to have been distraught by his death. This watercolour by Louise shows an affectionate and carefully painted image of a man thought to be her husband.
