Lady Amelia Windsor poses for steamy cover and reveals the place she'd love to live

By Meaghan Wray

Lady Amelia Windsor is the latest royal face to grace the cover of Tatler and she has a few words of wisdom for her fans. On top of being a regular fixture at various fashion events in Europe and having quite the eye when it comes to her personal style, the model royal has discovered the key to happiness, which she graciously shared in the issue!

Alongside a series of edgy and fashion-forward photos, the 23-year-old opened up about her dream of living by the ocean. “I would love to live in Dorset or Devon and swim in the sea every day come rain or shine,” she gushed. “I’m convinced it’s the key to happiness.” And clearly, this is no new revelation for the British royal who, according to her Instagram account, is rarely spotted anywhere but the sea. Ringing in her 23rd birthday on Aug. 24, the blond bombshell, dressed in a simple summer dress and Puma slides, shared a sweet snap of her on the beach, captioning it: “Serene sea side squinting”.

The granddaughter of the Duke of Kent, the Queen’s cousin, has been living her best life this summer, two years after being named Tatler’s most beautiful member of the Royal Family. She’s spent her summer globe-trotting around Europe’s most sought-after destinations, like Rome, Ibiza and Lake Como, where fellow royals the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were also in town with A-list pals George and Amal Clooney. Just a couple months before that, the style maven was spotted hitting up various runway shows during Fashion Week – she even walked in the Dolce & Gabbana secret show during Milan Fashion Week in 2017.

But aside from the sea, Amelia also has another passion, and that’s her charity work. During her gap year – a British term for a year-long break between high school and university – the Tatler cover girl worked with Veterans Aid, which is an organization that helps ex-servicemen and women in crisis, like homelessness, addiction or medical emergencies. “The team support 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,” she said, referencing England’s primary metro pass system. “I’ve never seen so much hard work and passion from so dedicated a group of people. I will never forget my time working there.”
