...Plus Princess Charlotte's husband was Sax Coburg Gotha. I know Prince Albert was..did not know there was someone from that area/dynasty (?) in the BRF before.
Yes, Charlotte married Leopold of Saxe-Coburg-Something, later King Leopold I of the Belgians. He was a brother of Victoria of Saxe-Coburg-Something (Queen Victoria's mother) and Ernst of Saxe-Coburg-Something (Prince Albert's father). Were you aware, NoviceDisher, that V&A were first cousins? Quite a fun little factoid.
I'm glad so many Dishers are interested in this thread
I was aware they were related on Queen Vic's mother's side and Prince Albert was encouraged by her brother, a King Leopold to pursue then Princess Victoria. I did not realize it was this
. Small world. So apparently Leopold went back to Belgium after Princess Charlotte died I presume. Quite fascinating..Thanks.
Thanks Mollie and Ellie for the relationship history and the book recs.
Regarding baby Princess Charlotte of Cambridge being named after this Princess Charlotte, I read somewhere that Charlotte is the female form of Charles and she was named after her grandparents and QEII. Don't know how accurate that is of course.
