Staff friendly and very helpful. Check in and out was easy. Shared bathroom was spotless and it was nice to have tea and coffee in room. Breakfast was good and served with a smile! A real gem of a place off the main road so little road noise. Booked a 4 bed room and expected to have very little space but was surprised at how much room there was. Sofa wardrobe and bedside cabinets also there. Everything very clean and great to have a cooked breakfast before going off.

The staff was very nice. It was lovely nd friendly, very basic but good value for money.

Around the King and Queen moved to this residence, which was originally intended as a private retreat. The Queen came to favor this residence, spending so much of her time there that it came to be known as The Queen's House. Indeed, in , an Act of Parliament settled the property on Queen Charlotte in exchange for her rights to Somerset House. During her first years in Great Britain, Charlotte's strained relationship with her mother-in-law, Princess Augusta , caused her difficulty in adapting to the life of the British court. The King enjoyed country pursuits and riding and preferred to keep his family's residence as much as possible in the then rural towns of Kew and Richmond.

He favoured an informal and relaxed domestic life, to the dismay of some courtiers more accustomed to displays of grandeur and strict protocol. Lady Mary Coke was indignant on hearing in July that the King, the Queen, her visiting brother Prince Ernest and Lady Effingham had gone for a walk through Richmond town by themselves without any servants. From the Royal family spent much of their time at a newly-constructed residence, the Queen's Lodge at Windsor, opposite Windsor Castle , in Windsor Great Park , where the King enjoyed hunting deer.

Queen Charlotte endeared herself to her ladies and to her children's attendants by treating them with friendly warmth, reflected in this note she wrote to her daughters' assistant governess:. My dear Miss Hamilton, What can I have to say? But to wish you a good morning, in the pretty blue and white room where I had the pleasure to sit and read with you The Hermit , a poem which is such a favourite with me that I have read it twice this summer.

What a blessing to keep good company! Very likely I should not have been acquainted with either poet or poem was it not for you. Charlotte did have some influence on political affairs through the King, an influence she was not considered [ by whom? Her influence was discreet and indirect, as demonstrated in the correspondence with her brother Charles. She used her closeness with George III to keep herself informed and to make recommendations for offices.

Apparently her recommendations were not direct, as she on one occasion, in , asked her brother Charles to burn her letter, because the King suspected that a person she had recently recommended for a post was the client of a woman who sold offices. Charlotte particularly interested herself in German issues. She took an interest in the War of the Bavarian Succession — , and it is possible that it was due to her efforts that the King supported British intervention in the continuing conflict between Joseph II and the Charles Theodore of Bavaria in When the King had his first, temporary, bout of mental illness in , her mother-in-law and Lord Bute kept Charlotte unaware of the situation.

The Regency Bill of stated that if the King should become permanently unable to rule, Charlotte was to become Regent. Her mother-in-law and Lord Bute had unsuccessfully opposed this arrangement, but as the King's illness of was temporary, Charlotte was aware neither of it, nor of the Regency Bill. The King's bout of physical and mental illness in distressed and terrified the Queen. The writer Fanny Burney , at that time one of the Queen's attendants, overheard her moaning to herself with "desponding sound": What will become of me?

When the doctor, Warren, was called, she was not informed and was not given the opportunity to speak with him. When told by the Prince of Wales that the King was to be removed to Kew, but that she should move to Queens House or to Windsor, she successfully insisted that she accompany her spouse to Kew. However, she and her daughters were taken to Kew separately from the King and lived secluded from him during his illness. They regularly visited him, but the visits tended to be uncomfortable, as he had a tendency to embrace them and refuse to let them go.

During the illness of the King a conflict arose between the Queen and the Prince of Wales, who were both suspected of desiring to assume the Regency should the illness of the King become permanent, resulting in him being declared unfit to rule. The Queen suspected the Prince of Wales of a plan to have the King declared insane with the assistance of Doctor Warren, and to take over the Regency. The followers of the Prince of Wales, notably Sir Gilbert Ellis, in turn suspected the Queen of a plan to have the King declared sane with the assistance of Doctor Willis and Prime Minister Pitt , so that he could have her appointed Regent should he fall ill again, and then have him declared insane again and assume the Regency.

In the Regency Bill of , the Prince of Wales was declared Regent should the King become permanently insane, but it also placed the King himself, his court and minor children under the guardianship of the Queen. The Queen used this Bill when she refused the Prince of Wales permission to see the King alone, even well after he had been declared sane again in the spring of The conflict around the regency led to serious discord between the Prince of Wales and his mother.

In an argument he accused her of having sided with his enemies, while she called him the enemy of the King. Their conflict became public when she refused to invite him to the concert held in celebration of the recovery of the King, which created a scandal. Queen Charlotte and the Prince of Wales finally reconciled, on her initiative, in March Despite the King's recovery in , he remained mentally fragile, and his health was easily overset by emotional stress.

As the King gradually became permanently insane, the Queen's personality altered: From onward, when the King displayed declining mental health, Queen Charlotte slept in a separate bedroom, had her meals separate from him, and avoided seeing him alone. They were passionate admirers of the music of George Frideric Handel. In April , Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart , then aged eight, arrived in Britain with his family as part of their grand tour of Europe and remained until July He put difficult works of Handel, J. Bach, and Carl Friedrich Abel before the boy: As a memento of the royal favour, Leopold Mozart published six sonatas composed by Wolfgang, known as Mozart's Opus 3 , that were dedicated to the Queen on 18 January , a dedication she rewarded with a present of 50 guineas.

Queen Charlotte was an amateur botanist who took a great interest in Kew Gardens. In an age of discovery, when such travellers and explorers as Captain James Cook and Sir Joseph Banks were constantly bringing home new species and varieties of plants, she ensured that the collections were greatly enriched and expanded. Among the royal couple's favored craftsmen and artists were the cabinetmaker William Vile , silversmith Thomas Heming , the landscape designer Capability Brown , and the German painter Johann Zoffany , who frequently painted the king and queen and their children in charmingly informal scenes, such as a portrait of Queen Charlotte and her children as she sat at her dressing table.

Another well-known porcelain service designed and named in her honour was the "Queen Charlotte" pattern. The queen founded orphanages and, in , became the patron providing new funding of the General Lying-in Hospital, a hospital for expectant mothers. As a result, none of her daughters had legitimate issue one, Princess Sophia, may have had an illegitimate son. Up until , portraits of Charlotte often depict her in maternal poses with her children, and she looks young and contented; [30] however, in that year her husband fell seriously ill and became temporarily insane.

It is now thought that the King was suffering from porphyria , but at the time the cause of the King's illness was unknown. Sir Thomas Lawrence's portrait of her at this time marks a transition point, after which she looks much older in her portraits; the Assistant Keeper of Charlotte's Wardrobe, Mrs. Papendiek , wrote that the Queen was "much changed, her hair quite grey". The French Revolution of probably added to the strain that Charlotte felt.

Charlotte was 11 years older than Marie Antoinette, yet they shared many interests, such as their love of music and the arts, in which they both enthusiastically took an interest. Never meeting face to face, they relegated their friendship to pen and paper. Marie Antoinette confided in Charlotte upon the outbreak of the French Revolution. Charlotte had organized apartments to be prepared and ready for the refugee royal family of France to occupy.

After the onset of his permanent madness in , George III was placed under the guardianship of his wife in accordance with the Regency Bill of It is believed she did not visit him again after June However, Charlotte remained supportive of her spouse as his illness, now believed to be porphyria , worsened in old age.

While her son, the Prince Regent, wielded the royal power, she was her spouse's legal guardian from until her death in Due to the extent of the King's illness he was incapable of knowing or understanding that she had died. During the Regency of her son, Queen Charlotte continued to fill her role as first lady in royal representation because of the estrangement of the Prince Regent and his spouse. She told the crowd that it was upsetting to be treated like that after such long service.

The Queen died in the presence of her eldest son, the Prince Regent , who was holding her hand as she sat in an armchair at the family's country retreat, Dutch House in Surrey now known as Kew Palace. Her husband died just over a year later. She is the second longest-serving consort in British history after the present Duke of Edinburgh , having served as such from her marriage on 8 September to her death 17 November , a total of 57 years and 70 days.

Her eldest son, the Prince Regent, claimed Charlotte's jewels at her death, but the rest of her property was sold at auction from May to August Her clothes, furniture, and even her snuff were sold by Christie's. He died blind, deaf, lame and insane 14 months later. The proposed North American colonies of Vandalia because of her supposed Vandal ancestry; see below [40] [41] [42] and Charlotina were also named for her. Her provision of funding to the General Lying-in Hospital in London prevented its closure; today it is named Queen Charlotte's and Chelsea Hospital , and is an acknowledged centre of excellence amongst maternity hospitals.

A large copy of the Allan Ramsay portrait of Queen Charlotte hangs in the main lobby of the hospital. Its oldest extant building, Old Queen's built — , and the city block that forms the historic core of the university, Queen's Campus , retain their original names. The Queen's arms changed twice to mirror the changes in her husband's arms, once in and then again in A funerary hatchment displaying the Queen's full coat of arms , painted in , is on display at Kew Palace.

Mario de Valdes y Cocom, historian of the African Diaspora, suggests that Charlotte may have had distant African ancestry; she descended from Margarita de Castro e Souza, a 15th-century Portuguese noblewoman, who traced her ancestry to King Afonso III of Portugal — and one of his mistresses , Madragana c. In a episode of the PBS TV series, Frontline , Valdes speculated that Scottish painter Allan Ramsay emphasized the Queen's alleged " mulatto " appearance in his portrait of her to support the anti-slave trade movement, [56] and noted that Baron Stockmar had described the Queen as having a "mulatto face" in his autobiography and that other contemporary sources made similar observations.

Critics of Valdes's theory point out that Margarita's and Madragana's distant perch in the queen's family tree — nine and 15 generations removed, respectively — makes any African ancestry that they bequeathed to Charlotte negligible. It is uncertain whether Madragana was even black, and Charlotte shared descent from Afonso and Madragana with a large proportion of Europe's royalty and nobility. In , David Buck, a Buckingham Palace spokesperson, was quoted by the Boston Globe as saying "This has been rumoured for years and years.

It is a matter of history, and frankly, we've got far more important things to talk about. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. For other uses, see Queen Charlotte disambiguation. Portrait by Nathaniel Dance-Holland , ca.
