The next piece of public art we came across in London was the statue of Queen Victoria created by Princess Louise, Duchess of Argyll, in front of Kensington Palace. The artist was the sixth child of Queen Victoria, and many of her sculptures can be seen across the UK. Other known works of Princess Louise are busts of Prince Leopold and Princess Beatrice at Osborn Hause and Frogmore House, a memorial to the colonial soldiers who fell during the Second Boer War at Whippingham Church on the Isle of Wight and further sculptures of Queen Victoria.
