[W]e were to dine at Chatsworth, and the addresses were to be presented before dinner. Mr. Mundy and the four county members were in a deputy-lieutenant’s uniform, and the Duke wore his handsome lord lieutenant’s dress. The Queen stood near one of the windows, with the Prince on her left hand. The Duke presented the addresses, which she handed on to Lord Jersey, who acted as Lord in Waiting, and after the Prince had received those addressed to him, the ceremony concluded with the presentation by the Duke of the five gentlemen themselves. The private band of the Duke played “God save the Queen” as we went in to dinner and also at intervals afterwards, as the Duke can hear conversation much better when music is going on. The Queen and Prince sat next each other opposite the windows, the Duke of Devonshire on the Queen’s left hand, and then the Duchess of Buccleuch as Mistress of the Robes, the Duke of Bedford, Lady Portman, &c. On the right of the Prince was Lady Louisa Cavendish, and opposite to Her Majesty sat the Duke of Wellington, the Duchess of Bedford, &c. My locality chanced to be at the top of the table, which holds four in width, and was placed between our two M.P.’s. I think we were about forty-six altogether.
