Mary Berry in Kensington Palace - 19 June, 1811, at night

from Diary of Mary Berry, 19 June 1811, pages 479–480:

Promised to dine at Kensington. […] We first walked in the gardens, which had a number of people in them; then the Princess played a great deal on the piano, in a manner to convince one she had played very well, but had been out of the habit of playing.
