Lady Amelia is often in the news, as one of the most beautiful members of the royal family. She’s also a successful fashion model.

 

Although Lady Amelia has been a regular on the London party scene (pictured here in 2014 with Ellie Smith, left, at a party at Kensington Palace) she has until recently stayed away from the limelight. Her looks have started to bring her a lot of media attention.

Lady Amelia’s father, the Earl of St. Andrews, lost his succession rights to the British throne as a consequence of marrying a Roman Catholic according to the Act of Settlement 1701. Although her grandmother, the Duchess of Kent, had converted to Roman Catholicism in 1994, it did not remove her grandfather, Prince Edward, from the line of succession as the duchess was Anglican at the time of their wedding in 1961.

Her uncle, Lord Nicholas Windsor, converted to Roman Catholicism in 2001, which removed him from the line of succession. In 2013 the Succession to the Crown Act was passed, granting Lady Amelia’s father succession rights once again.

Lady Amelia’s two older siblings were confirmed in the Catholic faith and therefore gave up their succession rights.

As such, she is the only heir of her father to maintain a position in the line of succession.
