hover over image to zoom

The Prince Regent, c.1815 wearing his Field Marshall's uniform with his Order of The Golden Fleece Neck Badge and Garter Star and Sash. The Prince Regent requested the Spanish Order to bring himself in line with The Duke of Wellington who habitually wore the decoration without wearing his K.B./G.C.B. The Prince Regent often claimed to be at Waterloo, much to the disgust of the Iron Duke. 

This bust is a fine ormolu example, after a work by Francis Leggatt Chantrey, where the Prince is modelled wearing a toga. A wax of this bust is held in the collection of the V & A (Mueum no.A.84-1936). 

English circa 1815.
