A three-quarter-length portrait of Queen Victoria, standing to left. She wears a white evening dress cut low to reveal her shoulders and the insignia of the Garter, with the Garter itself round her left arm. She has a white lace shawl, her arms are folded and she holds two red roses in her left hand. She wears a large brooch, similar to one given to her by Prince Albert as a wedding present. She is also shown wearing a locket around her neck containing the Prince's hair, given to her by the Queen of the Belgians. In her chignon she wears a small jewelled coronet, which was probably designed by Prince Albert. She stands against a grey background with sky, clouds, mountains and trees.
