ca. 1779 Marie Thérèse Charlotte of France and her governess, Victoire Armande Josèphe de Rohan, princesse de Guéméné, by Jean Pierre Julien Dupin after Pierre Thomas Le Clerc (Bibliothèque nationale de France - Paris France)

Everybody's happy - Princess Victoire, Marie Antoinette (looking down from the wall), Louis XVI or the Prince de Soubise (as a bust statue), and Madame Royale in this Dupin print from about 1779. According to her Wikipedia article, Victoire was the Royal childrens' governess until replaced by the Duchesse de Polignac in 1782.

Victoire's dress has frills on her neckline, sleeves, over-skirt, and the hem of her skirt. The print also shows her massive coiffure tipped at an angle, possibly held in place by numerous pins and fastenings.
