A Description Of Young Princess Charlotte Of Wales


The February 1807 edition of La Belle Assemblee printed a description of the then 12-year old Charlotte, Princess of Wales, the daughter of the future King George IV and his estranged wife Caroline of Brunswick:

In stature she is well grown for her age; but does not appear as if inclining to be tall. Her person is very delicately formed; her complexion is fair, her eyes blue; and the expression of her countenance is animated and engaging. Her talents are spoken of as peculiarly rare and brilliant; and it is a subject of no ordinary gratification that she has already overcome all those epidemic disorders which are incidental to childhood; and that the general state of her health is highly flattering.
