Regency Personalities Series-Princess Amelia of the United Kingdom

Princess Amelia of the United Kingdom was born on 7 August 1783, at the Royal Lodge, Windsor, the youngest of George III and Queen Charlotte’s fifteen children as well as the only of her siblings born at Windsor Castle. It is often said that she was her father’s favourite, and accordingly, he affectionately called her, “Emily”. She was born after the early deaths of her two elder brothers: Octavius (23 February 1779 – 3 May 1783) and Alfred (22 September 1780 – 20 August 1782).

She was twenty-one years younger than her eldest sibling George and nearly seventeen years younger than her eldest sister Charlotte. As the daughter of the monarch, she was styled Her Royal Highness The Princess Amelia from birth.

Amelia was christened at the Chapel Royal, St James’s Palace by John Moore, The Archbishop of Canterbury, on 17 September 1783. Her godparents were The Prince of Wales (Amelia’s eldest brother), The Princess Royal (her eldest sister), and The Princess Augusta Sophia (her second eldest sister). She was the fifteenth sibling christened there.

Coming so soon after the death of Octavius and shortly before the end of the war between Great Britain and the United States, Amelia’s birth was felt to be a beginning of a new period of hope, and much was expected of her, even from birth. “Our littlest sister is without exception one of the prettiest children I have ever seen,” her oldest sister wrote to Prince William when Amelia was only a month old. She was expected to be as beautiful, charming, and winning as Octavius, her father’s previous favorite child, had been. As a result of her two brothers’ deaths, Amelia was considered as her father’s favourite.

From an early age, Amelia was conscious of her rank. A popular tale relates that when the famous tragedian, Sarah Siddons , expressed a...
