This miniature was not painted from life but derives from a standard portrait of Mary II painted by William Wissing (1656 – 87). The miniature is one of six acquired from Dr Richard Mead by Frederick, Prince of Wales and the purchase reflects the Prince’s interest in historical portraiture. Possibly purchased by Frederick, Prince of Wales, 1735; first recorded in the Royal Collection c.1837 Cat. 226
