HMS 'Prince Royal' and other shipping in an estuary
A scene showing an estuary with shipping and land rising up on either side. The land on the far right includes white cliffs rising up towards fields and woods. Several church towers are implied on the skyline and this specificity indicates this may be the coast of England. The ship on the far right is shown stern view to port at anchor. She flies the flags of an East Indiaman and the English ensign and her stern bears a crest. In the centre of the estuary is a larger ship, port broadside view, flying the standard of James I and similar in appearance to his warship 'Prince Royal'. She is weighing anchor and preparing to get under way firing a salute. She has the figurehead of a man on a white horse carved on the bow. On the left is a third ship port bow view, also at anchor and with men working on her fore sail. She also flies the flag of an East Indiaman and the English standard. Other boats are at anchor or on the shoreline, several with their leeboards visible.
