The Princess Augusta Sophia (8 November 1768 – 22 September 1840) was a member of the British Royal Family, second daughter of George III and Queen Charlotte. She was a Princess of the United Kingdom and a Princess of Hanover

Early life

Princess Augusta Sophia was born at Buckingham House, St James's Park, London, the sixth child and second daughter of George III (1738-1820) and his wife Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz. Her mother was very keen to shelter her daughters, so Augusta was forced to be a companion of her mother, who did not die until a month before the princess's fiftieth birthday. For that reason, she never married or had any children.

Later life

According to a flyer held by the V&A Archives, Princess Augusta was a patron of L. Bertolotto's flea circus.

She died on 22 September 1840 at Clarence House, St. James, London, and was buried at St George's Chapel, Windsor on 2 October, after lying in state at Frogmore. [LondonGazette |issue=19902 |date=1840|10|7 |startpage=2 |endpage=3 |accessdate=2008-07-31]
