This special piece celebrates the truest of love: the Prince of Wales George IV and Maria Fitzherbert, a widowed commoner, who married in a secret ceremony and kept their devotion forever private. When George IV proposed to Maria, he sent her a picture of his own eye, painted by a famed artist and set in a locket. George IV also commissioned a miniature painting of Maria’s eye, which he kept hidden under his lapel, forever cementing their illicit love.
