The embarkation of His Majesty George the Fourth, on board the Royal George Yacht. Off Greenwich to visit his Scottish Dominions 10 Augt. 1822
Signed by the artist and dated, lower right. It shows George IV embarking from a royal barge at Greenwich Hospital on the 'Royal George', yacht, for Edinburgh on 10 August 1822. The attending squadron included steam vessels, as shown here. 'The king's jaunt' was the first visit to Scotland by a reigning monarch since Charles II was formally crowned as King of Scotland there during the Commonwealth period in 1651. His trip lasted from 15 to 27 August before George returned to Greenwich and its success launched a long-lasting English (and royal) love affair with the romantic aspects of Scottish history and scenery, largely due to the influence of Sir Walter Scott who played a great part in orchestrating the royal welcome.
