Who is Lady Amelia Windsor and how is she related to King Charles? – The Sun | The Sun

LADY Amelia Windsor has managed to carve out an impressive career for herself outside the Royal Firm.

The young Royal Family member is something of an It girl, has modelled for D&G and has even been dubbed "Britain's most beautiful royal".

Who is Lady Amelia Windsor and who are her parents?

Amelia is the second daughter and youngest child of George Windsor, Earl of St Andrews.

She is the youngest of three children and has an older sister, Lady Marina Windsor, and a brother, Edward Windsor.

She attended St Mary's Ascot school before going on a gap year to explore India and Thailand.

She then returned to the UK and studdied French and Italian at the University of Edinburgh.

What modelling has Lady Amelia Windsor done?

Lady Amelia Windsor's royal pedigree and model looks have seen her take to the catwalk, appear on the cover of Tatler and become a regular at London Fashion Week.

Dubbed "Britain’s most beautiful royal," Amelia (Mel to her friends) first drew attention at the Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations in 2016.

Wearing a pleated black and white dress by Chanel, the English rose was hailed for her chic style – and has appeared on Best Dressed lists ever since.

In an interview with The Telegraph the young royal talked about her unwavering love affair with fashion, Instagram and her passion for eco-conscious style.

Learning French and Italian at university seems to be all part of Amelia’s plan to work in the fashion industry.

Her CV is already punctuated with sought-after roles (it evidently helps to have "Windsor" attached to your name) – Azzedine Alaia, Dolce & Gabbana and Bulgari are just a few major fashion houses she's done work experience for.

On working with Azzedine Alaia, the young royal said: "I felt incredibly honoured to have met him and be in his presence for a short but amazing time."

She's also interned at jewellery house Bulgari, calling it "the ultimate Italian experience".

She caused a stir by posing for the cover of Tatler on a topless model.

What does Lady Amelia Windsor wear?

When it comes to putting together an outfit, Lady Amelia is a little more contemporary than classic.

Her favourite go-to labels are Burberry, Alexander McQueen and J.W. Anderson, designers known for their cutting-edge cuts and modern approach to fashion.

Despite insisting that one of her main style influences is her own aunt, Lady Helen Windsor (who was Giorgio Armani's muse for 17 years), Amelia also finds style inspiration in the street.

She said: "Sitting on a bus and just seeing someone opposite you can inspire a new idea for a look."

However, Amelia's real passion is eco-conscious style.

"We're all aware of the huge plastic crisis and the effect it's having on our planet," she's told The Telegraph.

"Fashion is a key role in that, but then also there are ways we can deal with it.

"Stella McCartney is someone to look up to in that sense, she makes the bigger point in her collection that you can be sustainable and stylish.

"That should be something that everyone looks for when they shop now".

What is Lady Amelia Windsor's fashion line?

Amelia launched a fashion collection with Penelope Chilvers in mid-2018, and revealed the pieces were designed to make a statement on Instagram.

Of her favourite social media channel, she's said: "I go on too much, I need to control myself."

Her obsession appears to be a canny one – she's been getting paid for sponsored Instagram posts.

Amelia's collection with Penelope, however, was all for a good cause.

Twenty per cent of the proceeds were donated to the War Child charity, a cause which is very close to her heart.

"The work they do is really crucial because conflict is one of the biggest horrors that happens in the world," she's said.

What royal events has Lady Amelia Windsor attended?

The Sun Online exclusively revealed that Lady Amelia Windsor was snubbed by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and she was not invited to their wedding.

She and her older sister Marina failed to bag an invitation to the wedding of the year.

A friend said: “They were a little surprised not to be invited as they were looking forward to going.

“Amelia is creating quite a name for herself with her modelling and Instagram posts.

“Perhaps Harry just wanted to keep the family invited to a small number or maybe he didn’t want anyone upstaging the bride.”

Lady Amelia and Lady Marina are William and Harry's third cousins.

She did attend the wedding of her cousin Prince William to Kate Middleton and more recently Queen Elizabeth II's funeral in September 2022.

How is Lady Amelia Windsor related to King Charles?

The Royal Family tree is far from straightforward but here's how Lady Amelia Windsor fits in.

Her grandfather is the Duke of Kent, who is first cousin to the late Queen, so she is consequently a great-great-granddaughter of George V and Queen Mary.

This means she is a second cousin once removed of Charles III.

What is Lady Amelia Winsdor's net worth?

Amelia's exact net worth is unknown.

However, it was reported that she could make £1 million a year through brand collaborations alone.

Branding expert Chris Ogle, of Flow Digital, told Femail: "Realistically, should she choose to monetise her value through brand endorsements, she would be able to earn around £1m per year without too much difficulty.

"However, should she choose to remain selective in her partnerships, then her relative value would skyrocket, as she is seen [as] not to be sold to the highest bidder."
