That information is much more helpful! Illustrated below is very much like what her appearance would have been. The plan shows a slightly later  and larger ship, after conversion in the navy. Take away all those gun ports and the barricades along the upper deck, replacing them with open rails, and you will have a pretty good idea of what your Princess Royal looked like.
