This charming double portrait depicts Victoria and Albert’s fourth daughter, Louise, at the age of two with her nurse Eliza Collins, who married Prince Albert’s valet Rudolph Löhlein in the same year. Victoria and Albert had a keen interest in those around them, and compiled albums of photographs of royal staff, including the Löhleins and their children.
