Together with a companion portrait of the Prince himself (by C. W. Cope, RA), this was hung in the Great Room. Both pictures remained there until the alterations to the Society's House in 1922–1923 when they were removed to their present positions on the main staircase. In Horsley's painting the Queen and her children are shown as they would have been in 1851, the year of the Great Exhibition, which Prince Albert so largely inspired and guided.
