Just when you thought you knew about all of the coolest members of the royal family, we've got another one for you. With all the buzz surrounding Prince Harry's recent engagement to Meghan Markle, it may seem hard to focus on any other person in the royal family.
However, for this one, we'll probably make an exception. Especially since she's been named Britain's "Most Beautiful Royal."
Interested yet? Meet Lady Amelia Windsor.
If you've never heard of her before, you might want to take a deep breath before we dive into her connection to the royal family. Lady Amelia's grandfather is Prince Edward, the Duke of Kent and first cousin to the Queen. Her father, George Windsor, is Prince Edward's oldest son and the Earl of St. Andrews.
Well, now that's over, let's get into the real reasons Lady Amelia has flown into our radar lately.
Here are some intriguing details to know about Britain's latest "It Girl", Lady Amelia Windsor.
1. Lady Amelia is 36th in line to the British throne.
So, her wait to get a seat might take a while. But at least she won't have to beat out her siblings to get there. Lady Amelia has a brother and a sister who are both confirmed to be Catholic, meaning that they would be eliminated from the line of succession due to the Act of Settlement 1701. (To make a long story short, this basically states that those in line to the British throne must be Protestants.) At least we know there won't be any sibling rivalry on her way to the throne, assuming she ever makes it there — that is a long wait!
2. She's "Instagram famous."
While many royals tend to stay away from social media, Lady Amelia is one of the few who seems to enjoy documenting her life on Instagram. And she's picked up a few followers on the way, too. Just shy of 28,000 actually. She often uses her page to show snaps from her travels around the world and is known to her followers with the nickname "Mel" Windsor.
3. She has more than just good looks.
And a claim to the throne, of course. Although British society magazine Tatler nominated her as "the most beautiful member of the royal family", Lady Amelia has a lot more going for her than this title suggests. She is currently attending the University of Edinburgh where she's studying French and Italian. She's also an avid reader. Many of her Instagram snaps show that one of her hobbies seems to be enjoying a good book.
4. Lady Amelia's mother is not a royal.
Sylvana Windsor doesn't come from royal lineage, but she does boast a successful career. She's an academic and a historian at the University of Cambridge. She's known professionally as Dr. Sylvana Tomaselli. When she married George Windsor, she gained the title of Countess of St. Andrews.
5. She has a passion for fashion.
In addition to her whirlwind travels and University studies, Lady Amelia is also a model. Because, why not? She has a contract with Storm, one of the world's top modeling agencies — the same agency that started the careers of models like Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne. She's already walked the runway for couture brands such as Dolce and Gabbana.
However, the royal's passion for fashion extends beyond the catwalk. In an interview, Lady Amelia stated that she'd like to learn more about the inner workings of fashion houses. "I would love to make a contribution to any aspect behind the creative process," she said. "I want to really further my understanding of every aspect of a fashion house: from the making of the fabrics to the production of a catwalk show."
6. The United States was one of her 2017 travel destinations.
In the same interview, Lady Amelia mentioned that America was one of the places she wanted to visit but has yet to travel to. The royal said that her sister had plans to move to New York and that she hoped to visit her. A quick look through Mel's Instagram shows that she has indeed made her dream of traveling to the U.S. come true.
Although not nearly as exotic as most of the locales Lady Amelia has visited, we're sure that the royal family's newest cool girl of the moment was welcomed by her American Instagram followers with open arms.
7. Despite her lifestyle, she's not a party girl.
You probably won't find Lady Amelia at the clubs. This royal takes her sleep very seriously. So seriously, in fact, that she claims she goes to bed at 9 pm. She even has bad dreams, just like the rest of us. About having too many puppies. Wait, that doesn't sound so bad.
We gather that Lady Amelia's schedule doesn't afford much time for having bad dreams. Or puppies, obviously.
