This engraving appears to be a good representation of the Royal Picture in the Queen's Ballroom at Windsor even though the measurements are not exactly as described on the engraving (possible differences due to framing). The source/painting for this engraving belonged to the Earl of Portmore. It is interesting to note that his partner Juliana Hele-Dutches Dowager, also had a version of The Five Eldest Children in the same household which she bequeathed to her stepson, Thomas Osborne 4th Duke of Leeds.
Please refer to the A. Browne mezzotint for a representation of the Leeds' Picture.
