Bolton had the command of the infantry. At nine o'clock precisely the gates were thrown open, and the procession moved on in the following order:

A guard of honour, consisting of fisty men of the Horse-Guards, took their stations in the

open causeway, opposite the portico; nine of the trumpeters followed in state liveries. The pages of the royal household, and the establishments of their Majesties, the Prince Regent, and Prince Leopold, walked to the chapel-door, most of them holding a flambeau. The hearse was drawn by eight of the King's black horses, escorted by a detachment of the Tenth Royal Hussars. The next carriage, with six horses, was the Princess Augusta's, containing Prince Leopold, the Dukes of York and Clarence, as mourners. The second was the private carriage of his Serene Highness,

The third, fourth, and fifth, were the carriages of the Prince Regent; the sixth and seventh were those of the Duke of York ; the eighth was that of the Duke of Sussex; the ninth was the Duke of Cumberland's; and the tenth, the Duke of Gloucester's. Each of them were drawn by six horses; the coachmen in full state liveries, with hatbands. Another detachment of fifty of the Horse-Guards closed the procession. With the exception of the first carriage, with his Serene Highness Prince Leopold, and the Dukes of York and Clarence, the rest moved in the procession with the windows

closed up.
