Footnotes

  • Several of the images from this series of tableaux vivants (which included Princess Alice as 'Spring,' the Princess Royal and Prince Arthur as 'Summer,' Prince Alfred as 'Autumn,' and the Prince of Wales, amongst others, as 'Winter') were never published as Queen Victoria feared that they lacked the dignity becoming of Royal children.
