The Lost Queen: The Life & Tragedy of the Prince Regent’s Daughter by Anne Stott Book Review




Princess Charlotte of Wales was born into tragedy as the only child of parents who had been at war since the moment they married. That Charlotte was born at all seems to be nothing short of a miracle. As the only legitimate child of the Prince of Wales (the future George IV) and Caroline of Brunswick, Charlotte was destined to become Queen one day. She fought her way to freedom, through the stifling circumstances of warring parents and unwanted marriage partners.

She found love with Prince Leopold of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (who would – long after her death – become the first King of the Belgians) and finally had some happiness in her life. But as tragically as it began, it would end… Charlotte died shortly after giving birth to a stillborn son.

The Lost Queen: The Life & Tragedy of the Prince Regent’s Daughter by Anne M Stott brings Charlotte back to life, as she deserves. You can tell that the book has been thoroughly researched and it is well-written. As a reader, I continued to have hope for a different outcome, despite knowing better.

The Lost Queen: The Life & Tragedy of the Prince Regent’s Daughter by Anne Stott will be available in the UK on 30 January, followed by the US on 3 May.
