This original 1890 Vanity Fair print by Sir Leslie Ward (signed as "Spy") is of Prince Arthur
William Patrick Albert, Duke of Connaught and Strathearn. You can see the royal symbol in
the top right corner of the print for this son of Queen Victoria. 

The biography which ran alongside the portrait  “Duke of Connaught and of Strathearn, and Earl of Sussex, Prince of the United
Kingdom, Duke of Saxony and Prince of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, the third son of
the Sovereign, was born in Buckingham Palace in 1850...he has made that great
and constant progress in military education which is needed in a real, as distinguished from a toy soldier; so that he now has very military as well as Royal
qualification for the office of Commander-in-Chief."

Vanity Fair was a weekly magazine of social, literary and political content which was published in London from 1868 until February 5, 1914. It was a favorite of Victorian and later, Edwardian England. The most famous artist who worked for Vanity Fair was “Spy” (Leslie Ward), who created the wonderful full page caricatures of famous men and women of the day. These lithographs remain Vanity Fair’s greatest legacy.
