In 1751 George was made Prince of Wales by his grandfather King George II. George II tried to give the new Prince of Wales a palace to have for his own. George refused his grandfather's offer. He preferred to stay with his mother.

One of the conditions stated in the royal marriage contract of Princess Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz and George III was that Charlotte was to never ever meddle in politics.

A number of orphanages were founded by Queen Charlotte. In 1809 she became Patron of the General Lying-in-Hospital, which was subsequently renamed as The Queen's Hospital.

Ive always been amused by the concept of a “Lying In” hospital.  As if birthing a child were a mere vacation from regular life.

Cyril, I don’t thank you often enough for finding these tidbits.  You always give us a treat every day (and sometimes more than once a day!)

Queen Charlotte introduced the Christmas tree to Britain. However these trees used branches of yew tree rather than the traditional fir trees that are used today.

King George III and Queen Charlotte were admirers of German music and art. They called upon German artists and musicians to play in the courtyard.

Queen Charlotte was from Mecklenburg-Strelitz. A visiting prince described Charlotte's hometown as "little more than a village with a single street in it."

George III was the first king to study science as part of his education. He had his own astronomical observatory.
