Princess Charlotte arriving at Harwich, September 1761
Following the accession of King George III in 1760 the choice of a bride for him fell upon Princess Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz. A squadron of yachts and men-of-war under the Admiral of the Fleet, Lord Anson, was sent to Cuxhaven on the German coast to collect her. The principal yacht, the 'Royal Caroline', was renamed 'Royal Charlotte', and sumptuously fitted out for the Princess. Westerly gales blew the returning squadron over to the Norwegian coast three times, so it was ten days before it reached Harwich.
