With the winter weather, the Queen had sent to Windsor for the ponies and sledge. The Dowager Lady Lyttleton is holding the Princess Royal. The Princess was named Victoria Adelaide Mary Louise, born in 1840 and died in 1901, the same year as her mother. From the age the child appears, maybe 4 to 5 years old, the print can be dated c1845. This is the only 19th century view of a snow-covered Pavilion.
