The best pictures of Queen Victoria at Balmoral show the monarch in various ceremonies and humbler situations.
The first picture shows Queen Victoria visiting the poor.

The second picture is a painting of Prince Albert presenting a pair of dead stags to the young Queen Victoria at night.

The third picture shows Queen Victoria’s morning walk but its unusual feature is the original source’s description of “a gillie being in attendance with extra wraps” – this is clearly a small portrait of the famous John Brown.

The Queen at Balmoral: the morning walk, "it is very unusual for Her Majesty to miss her morning walk betwen breakfast and luncheon. She may be seen with the Princess Beatrice and her favourite dogs strolling through the grounds or by Deeside, a gillie being in attendance with extra wraps in case the weather becomes 'too saft a wee.'"

Many more pictures of Queen Victoria can be found at the Look and Learn picture library.
