Anne Hyde married the Duke of York, the future James VII and II, in 1660. She was a regular patron of Lely and sat for her portrait on a number of occasions. She also commissioned the series of portraits known as the ‘Windsor Beauties’, which originally hung in St James's Palace and were later moved to Windsor Castle.
