Perhaps if you post a picture so we can see???? Kind of hard to guess from your vague description.

Maybe Prince Arthur Duke of Connaught? He was one of Victoria's sons. It's definitely not Bertie, Alfred the oldest sons of Victoria, Leopold another son died as younger man. The uniform looks like a navy uniform maybe? It's pretty hard since you don't see much of it.

I would say Arthur. It looks like some of the photos I have seen of him later in life.

No, definitely not Arthur! He looked very different.

What does Victoria look like? Is she younger Victoria or old fat Victoria? Her looks could help date it.

Could it be that it's not a relative? The photo doesn't resemble anyone in her immediate family. I think it was someone showing their loyalty/respect for their monarch by having her on the reverse of their own or a loved one's portrait, JMO

Could it possibly be a souvenir of the Boer War? Something like this? Australia: Boer War: Queen Victoria / Lord Roberts, S. Africa

It looks like perhaps it was a photographic version of that. Her certainly was honored for his participation in several major military events including Boer, India and Afghanistan.

Frederik Roberts was one of only 2 people who were not royalty (other being Churchill) to lie in state at Westminster hall before his funeral, a state funeral. He served as godfather to Prince Henry, Duke of Gloucester. Henry was named in part for him (2 names came from godparents). He was in the funeral procession of both Victoria and her son Edward.
