The Prince of Wales's faults provided rich material for Gillray’s prints. Dissolute, as well as being a glutton and a spendthrift, two of these faults are satirised in A voluptuary under the horrors of digestion (D12460) – unpaid bills lie under the overflowing chamber pot resulting from his self-indulgent appetite for food.
