Princess Victoria, 'Pussy' is pictured at the age of eight months, with Prince Albert’s favourite pet, the greyhound Eos. The barbary dove perched on the arm of the green silk bergère chair is probably included as a symbol of childhood innocence. The Queen and Prince kept a number of exotic birds in the Royal Aviary in the Home Park at Windsor.
