Henrietta Maria?

This portrait by T. Kennedy hangs in the dining room of the Strasburg Hotel. Is it Queen Henrietta Maria? It seems to be a parody of Van Dycks' painting of Maryland's namesake queen.

I got no information on the painting at the Hotel.

Sir Jeffery Hudson appears here as Cupid, with a flag attached to his arrow (Pug the monkey is gone completely).
