"Charlotte Sophia of Mecklenburg Strelitz, Queen Consort of George III", Allan Ramsay, ca. 1761.The queen founded orphanages and a hospital for expectant mothers. The education of women was of great importance to her, and she saw to it that her daughters were better educated than was usual for young women of the day. However, she insisted that her daughters live restricted lives close to their mother, and refused to allow them to marry until they were well-advanced in years.
