Parliament had agreed that the 50,000 pounds a year it had voted to Prince Leopold on his marriage should continue to be paid for the rest of his life after the demise of Charlotte.

And yet, when Prince Leopold, duke of Albany died the day before his next payment was due, Parliament (IIRC) refused to give it to his widow, forcing her to make do with much, much less.

In 1805 King George III began making plans for Charlotte's education, and engaged a large staff of instructors for the Princess, with the Bishop of Exeter to instruct her in the faith that King George believed one day Charlotte, as queen, would defend.

For lovers of Georgette Heyer.... There are fascinating glimpses of the lovely Princess Charlotte of Wales in Heyers IMO best novel, A Civil Contract. Some main characters gossip about Charlotte, her desastrous relationship with her father, her first engagement to "slender Billy" (William of Orange) and while it's not even a sub plot of the novel, only a topic of gossip that anchors the story, it's beautiful to read. Heyer is the queen of serious research and this book is more sombre than her usual delightful froth. It gives a wonderful impression of the royal family and the aristocracy. The old Queen (and would you believe it, she still speaks with a German accent!), former Prince Florizel dancing with his favourite sister Mary (always the beauty of the family)... and the charming, dissolute Prince Regent has a real role in the book. I recommend it.

I read Becoming Victoria and nearly cried at the death scene. It was a terrible tragedy, and people must have been desperate - who would end up on the throne?

So sad that her life ended to young.

I agree. Princess Charlotte would have been a wonderful Queen Regnant. It would be interesting to see the names she and Prince Leopold would have given to their son if he had been born successfully.

I guess it would've been most likely George.

My guess for the son's name is George Francis Ernest Frederick.   
George is after Princess Charlotte's father and the King Georges of England.   
Francis is after Prince Leopold's father, Duke Francis of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld.   
Ernest Frederick is after Francis' father, Duke Ernest Frederick of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld.   
Frederick is after Frederick Louis, Prince of Wales.

When Miss Cordelia Knight had a meeting with the Prince Regent at Carlton House, she assured him that Prince Leopold of Saxe-Coburg was an honourable man. Leopold had called only once at Warwick House and had behaved impeccably.

royalwessex, I like the painting of Princess Caroline, Princess Charlotte, and the harp. For once it is good news about Caroline.

True, you mean because of her reputation and this is a portrayal of her as an affectionate parent, playing a song from a sheet handed to her by Charlotte..... It's a painting that hangs in Buckingham Palace, in the Silk Tapestry Room.
