To learn more about this painting, visit its official entry in the catalog of the Royal Collection here.  I also wrote about this painting of Queen Caroline (when still Princess of Wales) a couple of years ago, and you can read that here.

Go a Bertie Dog mug, tee-shirt, bag or other nifty thing.  It's not too late for Christmas.

You, too, could have a cup of tea with Bertie. Or, you could wear his picture proudly. Visit our online store to see our range of Gratuitous Bertie Dog products.
