Queen Victoria's children often made cards and drawings for their parents as gifts on important dates, such as this watercolour executed by Princess Louise. 10 February 1862 was the Queen's first wedding anniversary since the death of her husband, Prince Albert, on 14 December 1861.

This drawing is housed in one of two volumes, compiled by Queen Victoria and containing works presented to Queen Victoria and Prince Albert by their nine children. For other items in the volume see Princes & Princesses album.
