The text on the Royal Collection website (www.royalcollection.org.uk) describes this Daguerreotype (Accesssed: 6 Aug 2010):
 
Queen Victoria had first seen this troupe of Tyrolean singers as a girl at Kensington Palace. For the Queen's birthday at Osborne in 1852, her mother, the Duchess of Kent, arranged for the singers to serenade her at breakfast. 'Victoria appeared very much pleased with the surprise,' the Duchess wrote. This hand-coloured enamelled daguerreotype was purchased by the Queen in the same year.
 
Signed on the plate: R. Beard
