King Edward VII Memorial, Sydney: 2 reviews and 9 photos

Liz and I were walking through the Botanical Gardens when we came upon this large bronze statue of King Edward VII on horseback. This statue was made in 1922 by Sir Thomas Brock.

King Edward was the son of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert; he waited a long time until he was 60 years old for his crown. He was a popular King but known to have many mistresses. His favorite mistress was Camilla Parker Bowle's Great Grandmother..I guess being a Mistress runs in her family but Charles did eventually marry Camilla.
