An intimate photograph of Prince Alfred (1844-1900) and his sister Princess Beatrice (1857-1944) from the 1859 sitting at Osborne. The Prince is sitting on an armchair with an ornate back, holding his little sister on his knees. He carefully touches her hair. Day seems to have captured a private moment between siblings.
