Early life and family[edit]

Lady Amelia Windsor was born on 24 August 1995 at Rosie Hospital in Cambridge and was christened in December 1995 at Chapel Royal, St James's Palace.[1] She is the youngest child of George Windsor, Earl of St Andrews and Sylvana Tomaselli.[2] Her paternal grandfather, Prince Edward, Duke of Kent[3][4], is a first cousin of Elizabeth II.[5][6] Her paternal great grandparents were Prince George, Duke of Kent and Princess Marina of Greece and Denmark, a granddaughter of George I of Greece and first cousin of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. Her paternal great-great grandparents were George V and Mary of Teck. She descends maternally from the Austrian Tomaselli family. Lady Amelia is the younger sister of Edward Windsor, Lord Downpatrick and Lady Marina Charlotte Windsor.[7] She is a third cousin of Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex.[8]

Succession rights[edit]

Lady Amelia's father, the Earl of St Andrews, converted to Roman Catholicism from Anglicanism to marry her mother, losing his succession rights to the British throne as a consequence. In 2013 the Succession to the Crown Act was passed, granting him succession rights once again.[9] Lady Amelia's two older siblings were confirmed in the Catholic faith and therefore gave up their succession rights.[10] As such, she is the only heir of her father to maintain a position in the line of succession.[11]

Career[edit]

Lady Amelia is signed with Storm Model Management.[12][13][2] In 2016 she was the cover girl for Tatler.[14] In February 2017 she walked the runway for Dolce & Gabbana at Milan Fashion Week.[15][16] She also walked in Dolce & Gabbana's 2019 Spring collection.[7] She was featured on the August 2017 cover of Vogue Japan.[17] In 2018, Lady Amelia released a collaboration with Penelope Chilvers for a line of shoes, and modeled for the line in a video campaign in Spain.[18] Twenty percent of the proceeds from her shoe collection were donated to War Child, a charity that aids children in conflict areas.[14]

Lady Amelia has worked for Chanel, Azzedine Alaia, and interned at BVLGARI.[12][14][2]

Personal life[edit]

After graduating from St Mary's School, Ascot[19], Lady Amelia spent time in India and Thailand.[20] She studies French and Italian at the University of Edinburgh.[13][21][22]

In 2011 she attended the wedding of her cousin Prince William of Wales to Catherine Middleton.[23]

Lady Amelia was named in the Vanity Fair International Best Dressed List in 2017.[24] She was dubbed "the most beautiful member of the royal family" by Tatler.[25][26] Later in 2017 she attended the Queen's annual Christmas lunch at Buckingham Palace.[27]

In 2018 Lady Amelia and her siblings were reportedly not invited to the wedding of their cousin Prince Harry of Wales to Meghan Markle.[28][29]
