Princess Patricia of Connaught (1886-1974) & Sir Alexander Ramsay (1881-1972)

I found this Macleans article, which described Princess Patricia of Connaught's life as a "modern princess". She supported the suffragette movement and was a talented artist. Between 1911 to 1916, she often undertook engagement with her father, Duke of Connaught and Strathearn, who was the governor general of Canada during this time. Her mother, Princess Louise Margaret of Prussia (later The Duchess of Connaught and Strathearn) was in precarious health.

Perhaps one of the most interesting part is that she married for love and relinquished the style of Her Royal Highness and title of Princess of Great Britain and Ireland. After her marriage to Sir Alexander Ramsay, she became Lady Patricia Ramsay, styled as a daughter of a royal duke.

There has not been a thread specifically for Princess Patricia of Connaught, but I hope there will be more discussions about her. I think she was ahead of her times, but also talented.

She has come up in previous discussions but I can't recall where exactly. Her decision to voluntarily renounce her status is I think unique? Maybe someone else knows if this is true. It's certainly an interesting precedent.

She is very well remembered here in Canada (and as a princess!) due to her infantry regiment! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prince...Light_Infantry

(to be fair, I'm not sure how many people know who "Princess Patricia" really was without consulting Wikipedia or the like. I know I was one.)

Princess Patricia's name was matched with the Prince Royal of Portugal, Prince Luis Felipe. If she had married Luis, she might have had to become Roman Catholic.

Tragically, Luís Filipe, Prince Royal of Portugal (1887-1908) was assassinated age at 20. It was during this time, where a negotiation for his marriage to Princess Patricia occurred.
