Prince Albert

By budapestbill      
Prince Albert - Husband and Consort to Queen Victoria.

The central statue of Albert, by John Henry Foley, was ceremonially "seated" in 1875, three years after the memorial opened. The statue faces to the south, towards the Royal Albert Hall. Albert is holding a catalogue of The Great Exhibition (1851) - and is robed as a Knight of the Garter.

The Albert Memorial is situated in Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, London, directly to the north of the Royal Albert Hall. It was commissioned by Queen Victoria in memory of her beloved husband, Prince Albert who died of typhoid in 1861. The memorial was designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott in the Gothic Revival style. Opened in July 1872 by Queen Victoria, the memorial consists of an ornate canopy or pavilion, in the style of a Gothic ciborium over the high altar of a church.
