Frederick Lewis (1707–1751), Prince of Wales, was the eldest son of George II, who was in line to inherit the throne. However, his father outlived him and so the throne passed to his son, George III. In 1737 Frederick Lewis was the first member of the Royal Family to become a Freemason. In this portrait he is wearing the robes of the Order of the Garter (KG), the highest chivalric order in the United Kingdom.
