Published: London : Pubd. Novr. 21, 1791, by Wm. Holland, No. 50 Oxford Street, 
King George III and his consort Queen Charlotte appear as a farmer and his wife riding to market, she with a cage of chickens on her lap as her husband drives the cart, another cage with geese and a pig in the back. Behind them two Lifeguardsmen on horseback ride with their sabres drawn and bunches of carrots and turnips hanging from their saddles. Signposts along the road indicate the way and mileage to Windsor. The King is singing, and the Queen and their guard join in the chorus.
