The Prince Regent sits at the head of the table, tipping his wine on the floor. Around the table sit figures such as Castlereagh who loudly discuss the possibility of getting a divorce for the Prince from his estranged wife Caroline. Since their split Caroline went to live in Italy where she took several lovers and caused great scandal.
