The Royal Yacht Osborne left Venice on 19 February and sailed south along the Dalmatian coast. A number of stops were made for the Prince to visit interesting sites, including Split (Spalatro) and Dubrovnik (Ragusa) in Croatia, Kotor (Cattaro) in Montenegro and Durrës (Durazzo) in Albania. The Albanians photographed by Bedford escorted the royal party ashore. They carried distinctive long guns which can be seen in the photograph. Acquired by the Prince of Wales, 1862
