Prince Arthur (later Duke of Connaught) was born at Buckingham Palace on 1 May 1850. He was the seventh child and third son of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, and enjoyed a long life of distinguished military and public service. In this photograph, taken by Caldesi in 1857, the Prince has adopted a pose reminiscent of the two putti in Raphael's Sistine Madonna.
