Queen Victoria and Prince Albert visited 'Auld Reekie' (Edinburgh) in 1842, two years after their marriage. This satire shows her in a rural setting, wearing a tartan skirt, barefoot, with Albert caressing her affectionately, with leering highlanders lurking behind, one saying 'Ech Sirs, but his Highness is ower keen at that sport!'.
