Lady Amelia Windsor, 22, kept a relatively low profile until stepping into the spotlight in 2016, when she was crowned the "most beautiful member of the royal family" by Tatler. Since appearing on the cover, Amelia has shot to stardom and all eyes are on her.

The royal, who is 36th in line to the throne, is currently studying at the University of Edinburgh. She is spending her year abroad in Rome and Paris, with a view to pursue a career in fashion. Last year, Vanity Fair included the pretty royal in their International Best Dressed list.

Amelia is certainly making a name for herself in the fashion world. She posed for Dolce & Gabbana's Fall 2017 campaign, aptly wearing a crown, and is a regular at Fashion Week in London, Paris and Milan. 

Here we take a look at everything you need to know about the young beauty...

In an interview with Miss Vogue last year, Amelia, who has completed an internship with Chanel, opened up about her fashion career aspirations.

"I would love to make a contribution to any aspect behind the creative process," she said. "On my year abroad I want to really further my understanding of every aspect of a fashion house: from the making of the fabrics to the production of a catwalk show."

Amelia also shared the best fashion advice she has been given for attending formal events. "Comfort first," she said. "You'll regret wearing agonising shoes when you want to boogie on the dance floor, and always remember to bring a clutch or bag which has a zip to keep everything secure so your belongings don't fly across the room when you're twirling around."

She was Tatler's first royal cover girl since Princess Eugenie featured for her 18th birthday in 2008.

In 2013 (pictured), Amelia appeared as a debutante at the Bal des Debutantes in Paris and later revealed to Teen Vogue that she had felt "like the most spoiled girl in the world".

She is the granddaughter of the Queen's cousin, Prince Edward, Duke of Kent. Here the pair are pictured at Prince William and Kate's pre-wedding dinner held at the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park on 28 April 2011.

Her mother is Sylvana Palma Windsor, Countess of St Andrews.

The 60-year-old is a historian at the University of Cambridge and prefers to be styled professionally as Dr. Sylvana Tomaselli.

Lady Amelia has two older siblings: Edward Windsor, Lord Downpatrick, born in 1988 and Lady Marina Windsor, born in 1992 (pictured).

Edward is the only son and heir apparent of the Earl and Countess of St Andrews.

In 2003, following the example of his grandmother, the Duchess of Kent, and uncle, Lord Nicholas Windsor, he became a member of the Roman Catholic Church and therefore was barred from the line of succession to the British Throne.

Lady Marina was 25th in the line of succession to the British Throne, however, in 2008 The Observer reported that she had been confirmed as a Roman Catholic, and had therefore also forfeited her place in the line of succession.

Lady Amelia has said in what seems her official Instagram account that Prince Charles is the "best great-uncle ever" and captioning a photo of both of them at Trooping the Colour taken in 2008 she wrote: "Love you Uncle Charles!"
