This is a photograph from an album at Osborne House titled "Royal Tableaux, Osborne ". It shows one of the queen's Indian servants. The queen had two Indian servants, Abdul Karim and Mohammed Buksh, brought over to England in 1887. In her diary she describes Karim as being much younger than Buksh, so perhaps this is Mohammed Buksh. Find out more.
