 The Prince Regent

A costumed presentation by John White at St Elizabeth Hall, 131 Exeter St, Salisbury, SP1 2SG

George, Prince of Wales, was proclaimed “Prince Regent” in February 1811, to rule in the stead of his father, George III, who had become increasingly ill.

He was initially proclaimed Regent for a period of 12 months, subsequently the Act of Parliament was extended as the King’s much-awaited recovery failed to materialise.

The Prince (leader of fashion, patron of the arts and a serial womaniser!) was eccentric in the extreme, even to the point of believing that he had fought against Napoleon whilst disguised as a British Army officer.
