The two Princes are playing in fancy dress while the Queen dresses for dinner. The scene takes place on the ground floor of Buckingham House, used by the Queen while her own apartments were being prepared above. Their slightly old-fashioned d├ęcor makes for a strangely fantastical environment where reality is confused with the images of paintings, figurines and reflections.
