This is 'The betrothal of Princess Charlotte and Prince Leopold' by George Clint, c.1816, which I saw in the recent exhibition in the Royal Pavilion, Brighton on 'Charlotte, the forgotten princess'.  I recall the caption to the painting stated that it was clear that the artist had not painted from life and the figures bore little resemblance to the originals; however, there is a certain charm about the scene which recalls Jane Austen:

I saw that painting of Charlotte and Leopold awhile ago, but I wasn't sure if it was really them--I've never seen Charlotte depicted wearing that hairstyle.

I can't say I disagree with your assessment, which is what I thought when I saw the painting myself, but I do recall the exhibitors seemed confident of the subject though disclaiming any likenesses to Leopold or Charlotte, or that either sat to the painter.

Yelena, do you by any chance have a larger version of the second portrait you posted (the one of Charlotte in a tartan)?  I've been looking for it for a long time.

Yes, Dru... happily I could find it again at the Royal Collection (btw, the stuff about Charlotte has increased since the last time I checked it!).
Here you are:
An edited version I did cropping the frame


Even bigger here!!...

The original one is here, in big size too!

Hope this can be useful to you!! :-)
