The new king, William IV, dressed as a sailor in loose striped trousers, capers in the centre of a semicircle of Ministers mocked as cannibals. Peel and Scarlett dance together on the left, Lyndhurst and Wellington on the right. All register complacency or triumph. It was hoped that William would replace his ministers but they kept their jobs.
