Harriet Georgiana Mundy in St James's Palace, London - 13 June, 1831
I am glad to tell you that I was able to go to the Queen’s ball on Monday last, about which I had really felt very doubtful, and I enjoyed the first part very much.
We arrived at the Palace early enough to see the King, Queen, and Princesses enter the ball-room and take their seats, the band of course playing ‘God save the King’ as they walked and bowed along. It was a splendid sight altogether.
