'Prince Albert the British Farmer', 1843. Artist: Unknown
'Prince Albert the British Farmer', 1843. Cartoon of Prince Albert (1819-1861) as a farmer. Prince Albert has turned his attention to the promotion of agriculture; and if you have seen, as most probably you have, an account of the sale of Prince Albert's stock, and the prices they fetched, I have not the slightest doubt you will give one cheer more to Prince Albert as a British Farmer. - Sir Robert Peel's Speech at Tamworth, October 2, 1843. Illustration from Punch or The London Charivari, Volume V, (London, 1843).
