The depositor's grandmother was Lady Burghersh and these letters formed the basis of 'A Brief memoir of the Princess Charlotte of Wales' written by Lady Rose Weigall, by command of Queen Victoria, 1874. Within the accession correspondence the depositor states that they no longer had suitable accommodation for the records and felt that they should be placed within the Royal Archives.
ArrangementThese have been preserved and catalogued in their physical order, which is chronological; the original order is unknown.
