Princess Charlotte of Wales was the daughter of King George IV of Great Britain and his wife Caroline of Brunswick.   
Charlotte was born in 1796. She might have become Queen Regnant Charlotte. However she died in 1817 before her grandfather King George III did.

Her story is so sad. Sometimes I think what would have been if she hadnt died. All european history would have changed.

Well, it was changed. I'd write more, but saving that for my book.  flirt

Before her marriage to Prince Leopold, Parliament voted that Princess Charlotte was to have 10,000 pounds a year pin money to cover the cost of her clothes and the payment of her ladies and her personal maids.   laundry laundry

The Prince Regent (the future King George IV) kept Princess Charlotte and Prince Leopold apart as much as possible. Leopold was in Brighton and Charlotte was in Windsor. They met occasionally when Charlotte drove down to the Pavilion for dinner.

Princess Charlotte asked her Aunt Mary what she thought of Prince Leopold. Princess Mary remarked: "From what I saw of him, he was good looking. A very gentleman-like young man."

Princess Charlotte was brought up in almost total seclusion at Windsor and Warwick House. Mary Berry, visiting Charlotte in 1811, remarked that the Princess "knows no creature, but the royal family and their attendants" and that "she has never yet seen a play or an opera".

In January 1813, just after she had celebrated her seventeenth birthday, Princess Charlotte was informed that her new governess was to be the Duchess of Leeds. The new sub-governess was to be Miss Cornelia Knight. Charlotte was furious. She was seventeen years old and a princess.

With that type of secluded upbringing, no wonder they are "all" a tad strange and find it difficult to interact with their peers.
