HRH Princess Charlotte, the Princess Royal by Peltro William Tomkins (Lowell Libson Ltd.)

Before going to fulfill her dynastic duties in Württemberg, Charlotte had court duties to fulfill at home wearing dresses that combined full supported skirts, complex engageantes, and high powdered hair with Empire waistlines as seen here. High vertical feathers are in style. The close up, next image, shows she is wearing at least a wide neck band, if not a partlet under her fichu.
