There's also a nice picture of princess Caroline of Wales and her daughter. Maybe someone can post it?

 Her father considered her a nuisance, even though he loved her, and once she reached adulthood was eager to get her off his hands.

Maybe the relation with her father became better when she married prince Leopold? Does anybody know?

If I understand, was grand duchess Olga F. the mother of the grand duchess Anastasia Mikhailovna (1860-1922), grand duchess of Mecklenburg Schwerin ? Are there pictures of mother and daughter together?

And what kind of relationship did Charlotte have with her father, the Prince of Wales ? Did they see each other often ?

Thank you grandduchess ella for your pics ! Are there photos of this grand duchess in her older age?  Did they had a palace in St. Petersburg ?

I read in an article:

"Charlotte is a capricious, neglected girl, grown up without family, friends or discipline. Despite all quarrels and hatred, she grew up in a bright and sensitive child. She is also nervous and exuberant. That causes her in problems with her family; they think that only 'royal dignity' is the right attitude for a future queen."

By whom Charlotte was brought up ? In no case by her parents...

Charlotte said about her mother: "My mother was bad, but she wouldn't have been so bad if my father wasn't much more bad."

If you go to that site, you can look into the book. Warning: it is in Dutch! If you want some translation, I will try.
But how was her relationship with her father and her grandparents ? Did they hate Charlotte ?

The book that I mean is from Reinout Goddyn, the title is 'Charlotte and Leopold. The loveletters from princess Charlotte of Wales to prince Leopold of Saxe-Coburg'. You can find it on www.bol.com.

But... why didn't her grandparents care for their granddaughter? I read somewhere that her father said: "Charlotte have to give up the crazy thought to possess an own will. So long as I live, she has to obey me. Even when she has got 30, 40 or 50 years." And what you said about prince Willem of the Netherlands, he married in 1816 the sister of Catharina Pavlovna, Anna !
