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 ╩╗dear little lassies╩╝.
