Victoria wanted a memorial to her beloved husband in his home town of Coburg and so commissioned this colossal bronze statue, designed by William Theed. She chose the site herself on a visit to Germany in 1862. The unveiling ceremony, depicted here, was the first occasion since Albert’s death on which all of his and Victoria’s nine children gathered together.
