Princess Wilhelmine : Memoirs (vol. 1)

Harriet, Countess Granville, to her sister Lady Georgiana Morpeth (August 1812): 'La Princesse Wilhelmine is not as interesting as she might be. There is so much detail of the pettiest kind, all the valets and governesses brought so much sur la scene, but I have only read the first volume. Her descriptions, her abuse and her coarseness, put me much in mind of the Princess of Wales, whose early life was probably spent in much the same way.'

Century: 1800-1849     Reader/Listener/Group: Harriet Countess Granville      Print: Book
