You could try the following thread:-

'Queen Victoria's Family' as it seems to have quite a few pictures of Queen Victoria with Albert and what not!

I hope it helps?! Our esteemed moderator and Picture Queen extraordinaire Grandduchessella may be a better placed member of our forum to make suggestions in this department thought!  Sorry Ella I sound sycophantic don't I....but we all appreciate and respect your vast knowledge! Bowing down metaphorically as I type!

I see such a striking resemblance between Queen Victoria and Princess Beatrice in the last portrait.

Who was the artist who painted the last portrait - the one with the long flowing locks.   Very different from the dowager matriarch we are used to seeing in later years !

That is her wedding dress indeed. At least I always found it labelled like that.

But she s wearing it years later her marriage? That picture is from mids 1850s or so =S

BTW, here s another picture of the session, It CANT be Victoria`s wedding! look how "old" looks the couple (at least to have  both 21), plus, photography wasnt massive, even in  royalty, back in 1840
