Maria, Duchess of Gloucester (1736–1807), wearing white dress and blue mantle, her powdered wig worn à la conseilleur by Philip Jean (Bonham's)

By the time Maria posed for this portrait, she had married Prince William Henry, Duke of Gloucester and nephew of King George III.

Maria has aged and her bouffant curly hair dates this into the 1780s or even early 90s. Her neckline is adorned with a simple ruffle.
