Further tableaux created on this occasion at Osborne House show the Duke and Duchess of Connaught with their children in Japanese costume. Queen Victoria noted in her diary:

The Tableaux were most successful … The Children were quite charming in their Japanese dresses; Patsy, with an enormous bow on her back & a fan, was too delightful.

Queen Victoria's Journal, 8 January 1891
