Splendours of the Subcontinent: A Prince's Tour of India 1875–6

15 December 2017 – 22 April 2018

In October 1875, Albert Edward, Prince of Wales, the eldest son of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, set off on a four-month tour to over 21 localities, which today encompass India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, and Nepal. Travelling nearly 7,600 miles by land and 2,300 miles by sea, he met more than 90 rulers of the different regions he visited, establishing personal links and strengthening ties between the Subcontinent and the British Crown.

The Prince recognised the great cultural value and artistic merit of the gifts he had received, and on his return to Britain made arrangements for the items to be placed on public display.

Entitled The Prince of Wales's India Collection, the exhibition toured Britain and Europe between 1876 and 1883 to allow as many people as possible to view the extraordinary examples of design and craftsmanship from the Subcontinent.

Similarly, Splendours of the Subcontinent: A Prince's Tour of India 1875–6 will offer opportunities to view these magnificent works at The Queen's Gallery, Palace of Holyroodhouse.
