Taken on the same occasion as the studies showing the Queen in an Admiral's Boat Cloak, this photograph shows the Queen in the north end of the White Drawing Room of Buckingham Palace, in which is displayed Francois Flameng's 1908 portrait of Queen Alexandra, wife of Edward VII (which is just visible far left).
