Wellington was now the elder statesman of the Tory party, and with Sir Robert Peel as Prime Minister, was briefly Foreign Secretary from 1834 to 35. His last office was as Minister without Portfolio during Peel’s second ministry from 1841 to 46. This profile portrait probably dates from these later years.
