About this work
A separate key identifies the figures. The Prince Consort lies in bed, dying of a disease diagnosed as typhoid fever. The Queen sits on the Prince Consort's left. Before her kneels Princess Alice; behind her is Prince Arthur; behind him Sir Charles Phipps, the Prince Consort's Treasurer. On the extreme right is Princess Louise. The Prince of Wales holds the Prince Consort's right hand. In a group on the left stand the Prince's physicians: Sir W. Jenner, Sir James Clark, Sir Henry Holland and Sir Thomas Watson (though the key identifies one of them as Sir William Fergusson).
