    Quarrel with the King

The following day, they formally entered London in a ceremonial procession. George was given the title of Prince of Wales.

    Political opposition

  5. Jorge II contribuyó al enorme progreso de Gran Bretaña, ante todo porque fue lo suficientemente listo como para escuchar a su esposa y tuvo en cuenta los consejos de sus ministros. Mantuvo a Robert Walpole en el cargo de jefe de ministros sólo porque Carolina insistió, y después contó con Henry Pelham y hacia el final de su mandato con William Pitt (el Viejo), a pesar de que en un principio no le agradó.
