Augusta, Duchess of Cambridge, was born #onthisday 25 July 1797. I meant to do a mini-post about her as there did not seem to be much information on Wikipedia. Somehow I got carried away and thought I would share what I have discovered about the wife of Prince Adolphus of Cambridge, 7th son of George III.
