Details

Her Royal Highness the Princess of Wales' . 'Engraving for the Lady's Magazine' Portrait of Princess Charlotte Augusta of Wales (1796-1817), Daughter of George IV. Charlotte's parents separated a few months after her birth, their marriage having lasted only a year. Charlotte was brought up by governesses and saw little of her mother. Despite spending much of her childhood in seclusion, she was warm-hearted if excitable. She married Prince Leopold of Saxe-Coburg in 1816. They enjoyed only a few months of happiness before she died in childbirth the following year. Public grief at her death was heightened by the universal scorn felt for the rest of the royal family. Some minor faults in the margins.
