Today a new exhibition examining the lives of three somewhat forgotten princesses opens at the Yale Center for British Art. “Enlightened Princesses: Caroline, Augusta, Charlotte, and the Shaping of the Modern World” focuses on three women who married into the British royal family during the 18th century.
