Lady Amelia Windsor may only be in her early 20s, but she’s already made quite the name for herself. As Duchess Kate and, more recently, Meghan Markle have their every move analyzed and publicized, the young Windsor, who is the granddaughter of the Duke and Duchess of Kent, is slowly growing her own following. Whether through her modeling gigs or her personal Instagram feed, she is captivating fans around the globe. Here’s everything you need to know about the hip royal who is 36th in line to the throne.
She was dubbed the “most beautiful” royal
British society magazine Tatler made headlines in 2016 when it featured a 20-year-old Windsor on its cover. It wasn’t the tabloid’s choice of model that raised eyebrows, however, it was the fact that the young beauty stunned in a daring Erdem dress with a plunging neckline. In addition to her sartorial choice, the accompanying headline also made news, as Windsor was dubbed “the most beautiful member of the royal family.”
She makes time to give back
Before enrolling in university, Windsor took a gap year in 2014 and made the most of it by working with Veterans Aid, a UK-based charity which, as she explained, “supports veterans struggling with all kinds of issues. Whether it’s finding accommodation, dealing with an addiction or something simple like buying food, clothing or an Oyster card. I’ve never seen so much hard work and passion from so dedicated a group of people,” she told Tatler. “I will never forget my time working there.”
And that’s not the only cause that’s close to her heart. In November 2017, she revealed her plans to raise money for War Child in 2018 by running a half marathon in support of the charity whose mission is to “empower children and young people in conflict areas by providing psychosocial support, stimulating education, and protecting children from the effects of war.”
She attended the University of Edinburgh and studied abroad
Proving that she’s more than just a pretty face, Windsor attended and graduated from the University of Edinburgh with a degree in French and Italian after completing an entire year studying abroad.
First she did a semester in Paris, then one in Rome, which afforded her the opportunity to thoroughly study both countries’ native languages while pursuing fashion internships in two of the world’s most stylish cities, including a stint at Chanel. “It was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had,” she gushed in 2016. “To see how much goes into making a fashion business is quite exciting.”
She signed to the same modeling agency as Cindy Crawford
In addition to her internships, Windsor has also made a name for herself in the fashion world as a model. She was “hand-picked as a muse by Dolce & Gabbana” and walked in the brand’s Fall 2017 Ready-to-Wear show during Milan Fashion Week. She was also shot posing in an Italian supermarket, alongside fellow royal Princess Olympia of Greece, for or D&G’s Fall 2017 campaign and has signed to Storm Management, a London-based modeling agency “renowned for finding, developing and managing the careers of some of the most exciting modelling talent worldwide,” including supermodel Cindy Crawford.
