Visit of William IV to Greenwich, 1835 'King William the 4th & Queen Adelaide went in an open boat to breakfast with Sir Thos Hardy the Governor of Greenwich Hospital'
This is a liquid oil sketch by Holland (not watercolour as previously recorded) though mounted as a drawing rather than as a canvas. William and Queen Adelaide made several visits to Greenwich during his reign, both to see Governor Keats (a particular friend) and Hardy, his successor. William was a popular king after his deeply unpopular brother George III, especially with seamen, since he had been a professional Naval officer (albeit not a very successful one, and later very tiresome as far as senior ranks and naval politicians were concerned).
