Princess Hannah is the sovereign Princess of Wildflower Meadows, an Augusta of Austenasia, and the fiancée and official consort of Emperor Jonathan I.

Biography

Princess Hannah was born in Croydon in February 1996. In 2006, she was appointed May Queen for Beddington - having been part of that "realm" (branch) of the organisation since 2000 - and in 2011 was given the title "Princess of Wildflower Meadows" while taking part in the London May Queen festival.

On 11 November 2011, Hannah met the then Crown Prince Jonathan at a charity shop while lost in Carshalton. The two did not maintain contact, but met again on 10 September 2015. After several weeks of close friendship they announced the start of a romantic relationship on 5 November, and Hannah was officially declared Princess Consort on 21 November.

On 12 May 2016, while the former was visiting her in Chester, Emperor Jonathan and Hannah founded the Principality of Wildflower Meadows, Hannah reassuming the title she had been given in the London May Queen festival as her sovereign style. The Principality claims the walled city of Chester, the nearby Grosvenor Park, an area of meadow to the south, another claim in Cheshire known as Maybridge, and the provinces of Wandleside and Forestedge near to Princess Hannah's UK home, over all of which the Princess reigns as an absolute monarch under Austenasian protection.

While on a holiday in Seville, Princess Hannah and Emperor Jonathan announced on 5 September 2016 that they had become engaged to be married, a day that is now annually commemorated in Austenasia as Imperial Engagement Day. Hannah is undergoing a four-year combined honours course in English Literature and Spanish at the University of Chester; as part of this university course, for her third and current year she is working at a school in Soria, Spain, where she is currently living along with Emperor Jonathan at the Austenasian Consulate-General in Castile and León.

Titles, styles and honours

Although Hannah was chosen as the May Queen of Beddington in May 2006, this was a title tied to a cultural event and not recognized by any government. Upon being appointed Princess Consort in November 2015, her style became Highness; in May 2016, upon the creation of Wildflower Meadows, it was decided that the style of the Wildflowerian Monarch would be Serene Highness, which the Princess used in preference to that of Highness within the Principality to indicate a distinct Wildflowerian identity despite it being a subordinate style in terms of rank. In November 2016, Princess Hannah was appointed Augusta, and since then has used "Imperial and Serene Highness" as her style. She continued to be known as Princess Consort Hannah in Austenasia until 6 January 2018, when Jonathan I decreed that her status as a sovereign monarch in her own right had precedence over that of Princess Consort, and that she would until their marriage therefore be known simply as Princess Hannah within the Empire, while nevertheless continuing to hold the official position of Princess Consort.
