oil on canvas, h 133cm × w 94cm Catalogue entry

Long thought to be a princess, this toddler is actually Prince William III at the age of three or four. The black, flat hat with a plume and bows was reserved for male wearers, as was the blue ribbon of the Order of the Garter, the highest Order of Chivalry in the United Kingdom.

On display in Philips wing, room 1.1
