Pencil, watercolour and bodycolour with gum arabic | 31.0 x 40.6 cm (whole object) | RCIN 920031

Louis-Philippe made a return visit to Windsor in October 1844. Here Victoria, Albert, the Duchess of Kent and the guest of honour depart the castle for a drive in a charabanc (a present from the French king). In her journal the queen described the public’s interest in Louis-Philippe, and Nash includes onlookers who line the path and perch on the mound of the Round Tower.
