Immediately behind George III, is the Princess Royal; next in succession, Augusta, Elizabeth, Mary, Sophia, and Amelia; the youngest in front. The present King William IV is in conversation with the Duke of York, who occupies the extreme right of spectator. Purchased at the sale of the late Queen Charlotte. [P. 30.]
