    Patricia was born on 17 March 1886 at Buckingham Palace, the youngest of three children to Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught, and Princess Louise Margaret of Prussia, Duchess of Connaught. She was named Victoria for her paternal grandmother, Queen Victoria, and Patricia because she was born on St. Patrick’s Day. As the third son of Queen Victoria, the Duke of Connaught held a series of military and diplomatic postings across the British Empire and dominions. Patricia travelled with her parents from a young age, residing with them in India from 1887 to 1890, where she “began to speak a mixture of English, German and Hindustani,” undertaking an extended tour of Mediterranean Europe and North Africa in 1905, and attending the opening of the first Union parliament of South Africa in 1910.

    When Patricia came of age, there was widespread speculation in the media that she would marry into one of Europe’s reigning families. King Alfonso XIII of Spain, Grand Duke Michael of Russia and the future King Manuel II of Portugal were among her suitors. Patricia, however, rejected any attempts to arrange a dynastic marriage. Unlike her grandmother, Queen Victoria, who disapproved of the campaign for women’s suffrage, Patricia was more supportive of increased political rights for women — as was her aunt, Princess Louise. In 1913, Patricia appointed a prominent suffragist as a lady-in-waiting—a decision that the media interpreted as tacit support for women’s suffrage. Queen Mary, consort of her cousin King George V, strongly disapproved. The Toronto Worldreported on 26 September 1913 that the king, queen and princess had all been invited to the Spencer estate at Althorp, but the “Queen refused to meet [the suffragist] Miss Glenteil, and the princess would not go to Althorp without...

    In 1911, the Duke of Connaught was appointed governor general of Canada. Patricia travelled with her parents to Canada and arrived in Québec City in October. Due to her mother’s ill health, Patricia often acted as her father’s hostess and accompanied him on official engagements and tours. “Princess Pat” became a popular public figure in Canada in her own right. In May 1912, Patricia travelled with her father to Winnipeg and the Maritimes. In the fall of 1912, Patricia and her parents toured Northern Ontario, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia and attended the first Calgary Stampede. In honour of Patricia’s visit to Victoria in 1912, Union Bay was renamed Patricia Bay. The same year, the province of Ontario expanded north of the Albany River and named the new region the “District of Patricia.” (In 1937, the Patricia Actadded the District of Patricia to the Kenora District and the region became known as the “Patricia Portion.”) A popular figure in both Canada and America, Patr...

    Patricia was an accomplished artist who created more than 600 works in oils, watercolours, pen and ink and gouache over the course of her lifetime. During her time in Canada, she contributed her work to exhibitions, raising the profile of Canadian artistic associations. The Montreal Gazette reported that the Art Association of Montreal’s 1912 Spring Exhibition was a “social event,” with “added interest by reason of six canvases from the brush of HRH Princess Patricia of Connaught,” including “two snow scenes and a view from Government House, Ottawa.” Patricia was inspired by Canadian landscapes, painting in her studio at Rideau Hall and sketching during royal tours in such diverse settings as Lake Louise and Alert Bay on the Pacific Coast. Most of her paintings remained within her family, but there are examples of her art in Canadian collections, including her 1916 painting of “Ice breaking up in Spring on the Ottawa River, below the Rideau Falls” in the Art Gallery of Ontario.

    Princess Patricia gave her name to Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry (PPCLI) in 1914. The regiment was sponsored by Montreal businessman Andrew Hamilton Gault and was the last privately funded regiment in the British Empire and dominions. The regimental commander, Lieutenant-Colonel Francis D. Farquhar, asked the Duke of Connaughtfor permission to name the regiment after Patricia. The princess took a close interest in her regiment, designing and creating the regimental colours or “Ric-A-Dam-Doo” (thought to be a Gaelic phrase for “cloth of our mother),” as the crimson flag with its royal blue centre and gold initials, V.P. (for Victoria Patricia), became known. At the presentation of the colours to her regiment, Patricia stated, “I have great pleasure in presenting you with these colours, which I have worked myself. I hope they will be associated with what I believe will be a distinguished corps. I shall follow the fortunes of you all with the deepest interest, and I heart...

    On 27 February 1919, at the age of 32, Patricia married the Honourable Alexander Ramsay (later Rear Admiral Sir Alexander Ramsay) in Westminster Abbey in London. Patricia was the first member of the royal family to marry at Westminster Abbey since King Richard II in 1382. The wedding set a precedent for royal weddings in the Abbey, including the future Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, who married there in 1947. After the wedding, Patricia chose to be styled Lady Patricia Ramsay but continued to receive the precedence accorded to princesses at royal events. Ramsay had served as naval aide-de-camp to the Duke of Connaught in Canada and proposed to Patricia at the fishing lodge of Canadian businessman J.K.L. Ross at St. Ann’s Bay in Nova Scotia. Their wedding attracted widespread public interest in Canada, and she received gifts from prominent Canadians. Members of the PPCLIattended the wedding, and the regimental march was among the music. The couple’s only child, Alexander (late...

    In September 1964, Patricia made an official visit to Edmonton to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the PPCLI, reviewing the regiment. She issued a statement in honour of the occasion: A new neighbourhood incorporated into Edmonton in 1964 was named Patricia Heights.

    Patricia died in 1974. She was succeeded as colonel-in-chief of the PPCLI by her goddaughter, Lady Patricia Brabourne Knatchbull, Countess Mountbatten of Burma (1924–2017). The Countess, a first cousin of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, served in the post until 2007, when she was succeeded by Adrienne Clarkson.

    Princess Patricia – "Patsy" to family and friends – was born on 17 March 1886, St Patrick's Day, at Buckingham Palace in London. Her father was Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught and Strathearn, the third son of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. Her mother was Princess Louise Margaret of Prussia. She had two elder siblings, Prince Arthur of Connaught and Princess Margaret of Connaught, later Crown Princess Margareta of Sweden. She was baptized Victoria Patricia Helena Elizabeth at St Anne's Church in Bagshot on 1 May 1886. Her godparents were Queen Victoria (her paternal grandmother); the Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (her paternal granduncle, who was represented by her paternal uncle Prince Christian of Schleswig-Holstein); the Hereditary Grand Duchess of Oldenburg (her maternal aunt); Prince Wilhelm of Prussia (her first cousin, for whom the German Ambassador, Count Hatzfeldt, stood proxy); Princess Christian of Schleswig-Holstein (her paternal aunt); and Pr...

    Princess Patricia travelled extensively in her early years. Her father, the Duke of Connaught, was posted to India with the army, and the young Princess spent two years living there. Connaught Place, the central business locus of New Delhi, is named for the Duke. In 1911, the Duke was appointed Governor General of Canada. Princess Patricia accompanied her parents to Canada, and she became popular there. Her portrait appears on the one-dollar note of the Dominion of Canada with the issue date 17 March 1917. She was named Colonel-in-Chief of Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry on 22 February 1918 and held that appointment until her death. The regiment named for her was privately raised by Andrew Hamilton Gault, of Montreal, at his own expense; it was the last privately raised regiment in the British Empire. Princess Patricia personally designed the badge and colours for the regiment to take overseas to France, and at her wedding in 1919, the regiment attended and played their...

    The question of Patricia's marriage was the subject of much speculation in the Edwardian era, as she was considered one of the most beautiful and eligible royal princesses of her generation. She was matched with various foreign royalties, including the King of Spain, the Prince Royal of Portugal, the future Grand Duke of Mecklenburg-Strelitz and Grand Duke Michael of Russia, younger brother of Tsar Nicholas II. In the end, however, Patricia chose a commoner rather than a husband of royal blood. She married naval Commander (later Admiral) Alexander Ramsay (29 May 1881 – 8 October 1972), one of her father's aides-de-camp and third son of the 13th Earl of Dalhousie, at Westminster Abbey on 27 February 1919.Her bridesmaids and page boys were: 1. Lady Mary Cambridge and Lady Helena Cambridge (daughters of Adolphus, 1st Marquess of Cambridge) 2. The Princess Mary (daughter of George V) 3. Lady Ida Ramsay and Lady Jean Ramsay (daughters of Arthur Ramsay, 14th Earl of Dalhousie, brother of...

    Despite relinquishing her royal title, Lady Patricia remained a member of the British Royal Family, remained in the line of succession, and attended all major royal events, including weddings, funerals, and the coronation of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth and of Queen Elizabeth II in 1937 and 1953 respectively. She rode in the carriage processions with other members of the Royal Family at the funerals of George V in 1936 and of King George VI.At the coronations, she proceeded in state from Buckingham Palace with other members of the Royal Family and took part in the procession of princes and princesses of the blood royal, attended by a train-bearer and an officer to carry her coronet. She also attended royal garden parties and participated in state visits, her attendance being recorded in the Court Circular together with other members of the Royal Family. Lady Patricia was an accomplished artist specializing in watercolours. She was made an honorary member of the Royal Institute...

    Lady Patricia died at Ribsden Holt, Windlesham, Surrey on 12 January 1974, eight weeks before her 88th birthday and fifteen months after her husband. At the time of her death, she was the younger of only two surviving grandchildren of Queen Victoria (the other was Princess Alice).[citation needed] Lady Patricia and Admiral Alexander Ramsay are buried at the Royal Burial Ground, Frogmore, directly behind the Royal Mausoleum of her grandparents Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, in Windsor Great Park.[citation needed]

    A Canadian Army infantry regiment, the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry, was named in her honour. Patricia Lake in Alberta also carries her name, as does the Patricia Bay Highway in Saanich, British Columbia. There is also a Thamesdown bus named after her in Swindon, Wiltshire. The second of Canadian Pacific's British Columbia Coast Steamship's two 365 foot-long, 56 foot-wide, 5,911 / 6,062 ton (1963 refit) Fairfield Shipyards, Scotland-built steam turbo-electric passenger ships, the TEV Princess Patricia (Princess Patricia II), was named in 1948 for Princess Patricia of Connaught and launched by her as Lady Patricia Ramsay at Govan in that year. The first ship for Princess Cruises via a winter Mexican Riviera charter from CPL in 1965, the ship was retired from Alaskan cruising services in 1981 and served as a floating hotel in Vancouver, British Columbia for their 1986 World's Fairbefore being finally scrapped in 1989. Her sister ship was the TEV Princess Marguerite(II)....
