Administrative/Biographical history:

Princess Charlotte Augusta of Wales was born in 1796, the only child of the unhappy and controversial marriage of George, Prince of Wales (later George IV) and his wife Caroline of Brunswick. Princess Charlotte was very popular with the public and was greeted with cheering crowds when she made appearances. She married Prince Leopold of Saxe-Coburg in 1816, soon falling pregnant. The pregnancy was difficult, ending in November 1817 with a fifty-hour labour in which both mother and son died. The death ended the line of succession of George III (Charlotte's grandfather) and was greatly mourned by the public. Charlotte was buried in Windsor on 19 November 1817.


Scope and content/abstract:

Printed notice from the inhabitants of Christ Church Spitalfields, requesting closure of shops and houses on the day of the funeral of Princess Charlotte, 1817.
