Humfrey's long gone, I think, as he posted this enquiry in 2011, but yes, I think it is a portrait of Maria, Duchess of Gloucester, formerly widow of Earl Waldegrave. Her hair and clothing in the portrait would have been wildly out of date for the 1790's and Mary of Gloucester but fits in well with a date of 1776. Maria had children with her previous husband and one son and two daughters with the Duke. However, one daughter died as a baby.

There were lots of rumours of course about the daughters as well as the sons of King George III, but it's doubtful that Mary ever had a child.

I didn't even notice dates, just saw thread pop up.

Maria had 6 kids, but only her 3 daughters from her 1st husband gave her grandkids. William's full sister who reached adulthood didn't marry. The current duke of Graftton is her 6 times great-grandson by her daughter Charlotte. Her daughter Anne was the 4th great-grandmother of Princess Diana via her granddaughter Adelaide Seymour who married the 4th Earl Spencer. Her eldest (in painting I posted) married the cousin who inherited her dad's title. The current earl Waldegrave is Maria's 4 time great grandson. Lady Susan Hussey, lady of the bed chamber to QEII is also, as she is the earl's sister.

Maria and her kids all were painted.

I agree. I think that had theire been a child for Mary, it would have leaked out, because there were so many rumours about the poor girls. The one that DID almost definitely become a" near scandal", Sophia, HAS been pretty much confirmed... that she had an illegitimate child.
I think that Princess Augusta possibly had a secret marriage to Brent Spencer...and Ameila was secretly engaged to some man whom I ca't remember now. But really given the wretched way they were treated, I am surprised that they didn't all go nuts.
