Statue of Queen Anne

The statue of Queen Anne, standing outside the West front of St Paul's Cathedral, depicts the ruling monarch at the time of the Cathedral's completion in 1710. It is an 1886 replica by Richard Belt which replaced the original dilapidated version sculpted by Francis Bird in 1712. The ladies around the base of the statue represent England, France, Ireland and North America, all of whom Anne considered herself to be queen of. The original Carrara marble statue of Anne and four ladies-in-waiting was given to Augustus Hare, a writer of travel guides to London and Rome who had paid for Belt's version. He moved it to his country house, Holmhurst in Baldslow, Sussex.
