The competition to design the memorial to Prince Albert was won by George Gilbert Scott, with his Gothic design based partly on the Eleanor Crosses erected by Edward I to commemorate his wife, Eleanor of Castile. The memorial was unveiled in 1872 with the central statue, designed by Marochetti and completed by J.H. Foley, following in 1876.
