This looks like a watercolour study for the painting 'The Queen Rides Out' by Sir Francis Grant.  There is a commentary on this picture in the Royal Collection here, where you can magnified image as well:
http://royalcollection.org.uk/microsites/theconversationpiece/MicroObject.asp?item=0&themeid=922&object=400749&row=0&detail=magnify.  The clothing and hairstyle look very much the same in the Royal Collection picture, minus the epaulettes, Garter sash and feathers and plus a veil.  The signature under her left arm looks not too dissimilar to that of Sir Francis, if you put it right side up:

Possibly, as it is signed, it is a portrait based on the larger piece.

Sorry to be a bother, but could anyone identify all the people in this image, which was posted early on in this thread?

Obviously, Victoria is on the throne and I think that Bertie and Alix are on her left and the girl sitting is Beatrice and maybe the boy is Wilhelm? But that is as far as I can go, can anyone help me further?
Thanks in advance.

It's hard to differentiate between some of the ladies, but I think they have been placed next to there spouse, so based on that I think, left to right:
Lord Lorne, Princess Louise, Prince Louis, Princess Alice, Crown Prince Frederick & Princess Victoria, Prince Arthur, Prince & Princess of Wales, Queen Victoria, Duke & Duchess of Edinburgh, Prince Christian & Princess Helena, Prince Leopold and in front Prince Eddy? & Princess Beatrice.

Oh yes, it would be Eddie, not Wilhelm. Thank you for identification! Is there a date for it? My guess is 1972ish? Based on Louise being married and Arthur not.

Maybe around 1874? Just because the Duchess of Edinburgh is featured!

Lord Lorne is one good looking dude in this picture.
