I have often thought that Élisabeth Charlotte looked like her mother, she was much more plain then her older half sisters Marie Louise (1662-1689) and Anne Marie (1669-1728).

Liselotte wrote to her half-sister the Raugravine Louisa, that her daughter's "features are not beautiful, but she has a nice expression, a pretty complexion, and a kind heart."

page from one of Liselottes numerous letters to Amalie Elisabeth her halfsister "Amelisse". It is written in German which I think is so great and interesting because most people used to write French in those days...
