These portraits taken at Balmoral were part of the last commission Fenton received from the Queen. Victoria, Princess Royal (1840-1901) and Princess Alice (1843-78) are seated on a bench, probably in front of the gardener’s cottage on the Balmoral estate. The artist Edwin Landseer stayed here in 1850 and it may have been where Fenton himself stayed.
