There have been quite a few little exhibitions of paintings -on canvas but also on many other surfaces such like china, screens etc from many princesses and royals - the archives of local museums and palaces seem to be full.
I once went to see an exhibition on the dowry of several russian princesses to the royal court here and there was a small side show of art done by them over the course of their rather (boring) restricted and sheltered lives.

Daisy did the costumes and artwork of a fairytale film, I think it is something about 7 swans, which has greatly impressed me. I was looking for a video copy high and low, but with no luck. If anyone knows where I can get one, or see the movie, Id be very grateful.

Empress Frederick, aka Victoria of Prussia, the Princess Royal of Britain, was an accomplished painter. She painted portraits of her children that I didn't find online but in a catalogue about her life.

Her sister Louise, Duchess of Argyll, was an excellent sculptor. https://www.historyscotla...of-a-royal-artist-part-2/  She was the first British royal to visit an art academy and study art seriously.



The sculpture of her mother in coronation robes in front of Kensington Palace is her work.

The Duke of Edinburgh paints. I really like his landscape paintings, and the portrait of his wife by the breakfast table is lovely. https://www.rct.uk/collec...as-an-artist-and-designer



Lady Sarah Chatto, daughter of the late Princess Margaret and one of my all-time favorite royals, is a professional painter. https://www.redfern-gallery.com/exhibitions/16/
I love her still life paintings. She's excellent. Her husband is an artist, too, and teaches drawing iirc.

I would also suggest to look further into Alexandra, Empress of Russia, and her textile work. She was an accomplished needlewoman and I wish I'd see examples of her work. Textile art has suffered from neglect from art historians ("just a hobby for women"). Many women who had no other outlet for their expressive powers used their skills as needlewomen, and I have the feeling that Alix might well be one of them.

there is a strong streak of artistic talent in the family of Queen Victoria, herself a good water colourist.
