"Temperance Enjoying a Frugal Meal" by James Gillray (1792) at the Museums Sheffield, Sheffield - This cartoon satirizes the ways of King George III and Queen Charlotte, who lived in a very austere manner compared to their son, the Prince of Wales. Here, the royal couple is shown in patched clothes and eating eggs and salad, both of which (especially the latter) were considered commoners' food. Also, they are drinking water rather than wine, which was odd for an aristocratic household.
