William Ross painted many watercolour portraits of the royal children. The queen appreciated his ability to capture a good likeness and his relatively low prices. This double portrait of the two eldest princes in Highland dress was quickly reproduced as a print, which Victoria and Albert gave to members of their court as Christmas presents in 1847.
