'Her Majesty's train arrived at the Royal Clarence Victualling-yard...The moment of her Majesty's appearance in the port was a signal for that enthusiasm which is always displayed whenever she is graciously pleased to appear among her subjects. Simultaneous cheers burst from tens of thousands of loyal hearts, showing the hearty welcome of our "Sea Queen" by her delighted people...The Court immediately embarked on board the State barge,...steered by Captain the Hon. Joseph Denman...'. From "Illustrated London News", 1856.
