“A new chapter in a novel is something like a new scene in a play; and when I draw up the curtain this time, reader, you must fancy you see a room in the George Inn at Millcote, with such large figured papering on the walls as inn rooms have; such a carpet, such furniture, such ornaments on the mantelpiece, such prints, including a portrait of George the Third, and another of the Prince of Wales, and a representation of the death of Wolfe.”
But which prince? Probably not Albert, Prince of Wales. According to these links I put in the text, the book’s publication do not match the Samuel Cousin print’s date.
Maybe someone made a print of this painting?
Lastly, why didn’t the author give the prince a name?
