I keep returning to this Hayter State Portrait being intrigued by the way the robes are depicted.
I wonder if it can be confirmed that the white, part-transparent overgarment with flounces is the Colobium Sindonis.
It has a low-cut neckline, as described in Macleane, and another gown or petticoat can be seen under it ending at floor length above one foot.
Perhaps someone can find a full description of this portrait. The Royal Collection page does not give any detail of the robes.
