She, a commoner, would go against all herbeliefs for his love, and he, a future King of England, would flout thosewho would try to control him in order to be with this woman whom he lovedwith the ardor and devotion of the very young. Their bittersweet romanceprovides a birdseye view into the upbringing of the Prince of Wales, as wellas a peek into the sybaritic court of George II.
