George, Prince of Wales and Frederick, later Duke of York, at Buckingham House
Johann Zoffany
1765

This painting gives us a glimpse into what it might have been like for royal children growing up in Buckingham Palace during the eighteenth century. The two brothers are depicted in Queen Charlotte's Drawing Room, which now forms part of the Picture Gallery. Sir Anthony Van Dyck's Three Eldest Children of Charles I hanging above the fireplace emphasises the dynastic connections between the ruling House of Hanover and the Stuarts a century earlier.
