ACCOUNT of the Circumstances of the ARRIVAL and the CEREMONIAL of the NUPTIALS of her ROYAL HIGHNESS the PRINCESS of WALES.

N Tuesday, March 24th, at feven o'clock in the morning, -her ferene highness, accompanied by her mother, the duchefs of Brunfwick, and the hon. Mrs. Harcourt, left Hanover, on her route to England. She was escorted out of that city by a large troop of Hanoverian guards, the drums beating, and colours flying, and under a falute of guns from the garrifon. The duchefs of Brunswick accompanied her the first stage of her journey, to a place called Muhllendorff, where the duke of Brunswick, who had come thither to meet her, took final leave of his daughter, and returned to Brunswick with his duchefs. The parting fcene was extremely affecting; for, according to every information we have received from those who have been much in the habit of seeing the princefs, few parents have to regret the lofs of fo good and amiable a child. About 12 o'clock, her ferene highness continued her journey, and proceeded on two more stages; and flept that night at a place called Weltzrode.

The proceflion confilted of 6


coaches and fix, with four outriders 2 courier carriages with four horfes 2 baggage waggons containing provifions for the journey, with fix horfes. In the first carriage were 2 chamberlains belonging to the court of Brunswick; in the fecond were the princess and Mrs. Harcourt; in the third were lord Malmesbury and major Heflop; and in the other carriages were different attendants.

On the fecond night (Wednesday) of the journey, her ferene highness flept at Clofterfeven, about 26 miles from Stadt; and on Thursday afternoon at three o'clock, the princess arrived at Stadt to dinner. During the route, her ferene highness and fuite were entertained, at each place where they stopped, at the house of fome nobleman or gentleman, as had been previously fettled. Count Wangenheim, fteward of the household at the palace of Hanover, went on before to provide the neceffary accommodations.

On Saturday morning at 9 o'clock, her ferene highnefs embarked on board one of his majesty's cutters, which was named the Princess Royal, under a falute of the guns from the batteries; and was received by commodore Payne. In the fame Gutter went Mrs. Harcourt and lord Malmesbury; the rest of the reti

nue who came to England with the princefs, having embarked on board another cutter. At three in the afternoon, they reached Cruxhaven, where her ferene highness was received on board the Jupiter of 50 guns, captain Lechmere. Commodore Payne, Mrs. Harcourt, and lord Malmesbury, embarked in the

At nine o'clock on Saturday morning the fhips got under weigh, the tide ferving, and about noon the Jupiter anchored off Gravefend. The princefs flept on board that night.


On Sunday morning at eight o'clock, the hips weighed anchor from Cruxhaven, with a fair wind at E. N. E. which continued till Wednesday, when a thick fog came on. They were then only fix leagues from Yarmouth: but as it was dangerous to draw nigher the coaft, the fhips dropped anchor, and fired fog-guns every hour. In this fituation they lay through the whole of Thursday. The princefs had hitherto been extremely well, had walked the quarter-deck every day, and was uncommonly cheerful; but, what with the fog and the motion of the veffel at anchor, fhe became a little incommoded. Every accommodation was offered, and attention paid her ferene highness, who expreffed her fenfe of the obligation. On Friday morning, the day broke with uncommon fplendour, and at four o'clock in the morning, the Jupiter made the fignal to get under weigh. The fleet went under an eafy fail, came off Harwich about noon, and paffed through the Swinn, to enter the Thames. About two o'clock, a very thick fog came on, which obliged the commodore to drop anchor. At four o'clock the fog difperfed, and the fignal being made to unmoor, the fleet again got under weigh, and about fix o'clock dropped anchor at the Nore; being fafuted from the Sandwich guard-fhip

On Sunday morning, as foon as the tide ferved, her ferene highness, accompanied by Mrs. Harcourt, lord Malmesbury, and commodore fame fhip. Major Heflop, colonel Ri-Payne, difembarked from the Juchardfon, and Mr. Rofs, came home piter, and went on board one of in the Phaeton frigate,capt. Stopford. the royal yachts; and, a few minutes after twelve o'clock, landed Greenwich hofpital. The princefs was received on her landing by fir Hugh Pallifer, the governor, by the lieutenant governor, and other officers of this noble institution, who conducted her to the governor's house where fhe took tea and coffee. Lady Jerfey did not arrive at the governor's till an hour after the princess had landed; and foon after they both retired into an adjoining room, and the drefs of the princess was changed, from a muslin gown, and blue fatin petticoat, with a black beaver hat, and blue and black feathers, for a white fatin gown, and very elegant turban cap of fatin, trimmed with crape, and ornamented with white feathers, which were brought from town by lady Jerfey.

A little after two o'clock, her serene highness left the governor's houfe; and, at three o'clock, alighted at St. James's, and was introduced into the apartments prepared for her reception, which look into Cleveland-row.

The head-drefs of the princefs, we understand, was exactly the fame as that in which fhe is painted in the picture fent by the duke of Brunfwick to the prince; and his royal highnefs was dreffed in a full fuit of the huflar uniform of his regiment, the fame as the dress of his picture, painted by Cofway, and fent to the princess.
