This portrait of the young prince was taken while his father, Prince Henry, Duke of Gloucester, was Governor General of Australia (1945–1947). The young prince was four years old at the time of this portrait. He expressed the desire to hold his toy boat during the sitting, adding a sense of childhood shyness to the portrait.
