Lizzie and Mary were the daughters of the Queen’s forester and a local merchant respectively, and both later went into royal service. Victoria and Albert had a keen interest in those around them, and compiled albums of photographs of royal servants. Victoria also sketched the two girls herself, referring to them in her journal as ʻdear little lassiesʼ.
