Princess (1766) Charlotte


British princess, the eldest daughter of George III. She was later the Queen Consort of Frederick of Württemberg. Charlotte was the third holder of the title Princess Royal.

On 18 May 1797, the Princess Royal was married at the Chapel Royal, St. James's Palace, London to The Hereditary Prince Frederick of Württemberg, the eldest son and heir apparent of Duke Frederick II Eugene of Württemberg and his wife, Margravine Sophia Dorothea of Brandenburg-Schwedt. The younger Frederick succeeded his father as the reigning Duke of Württemberg on 22 December 1797. The marriage between Duke Frederick and the Princess Royal produced one child: a stillborn daughter on 27 April 1798.

She was a godmother (by proxy) at the christening of her niece, Princess Victoria of Kent (the future Queen Victoria), in 1819. In 1827, she returned to Britain for the first time since her wedding in 1797 in order to have surgery for dropsy. She died at Ludwigsburg Palace in Germany on 5 October 1828 and is buried there in the royal vault.

This morning, between eight and nine o'clock, the queen was happily delivered of a princefs;" same copied in The British magazine, or, Monthly repository for gentlemen & ladies (Oct 1766), p. 554.

Previously Scholfield quoted "An Illustration of the Liturgy of the Church of England" by Thomas Pruen (Rivington, 1820), p. 159: "born September 29, 1766, between 6 and 7 o'clock in the morning."
