Lady Charlotte Thynne was born 10 April 1811 to Thomas Thynne, 2nd Marquess of Bath (1765-1837) and Isabella Elizabeth Byng (1773-1830) and died 18 March 1895 Ditton Park, Buckinghamshire, England, United Kingdom of unspecified causes. She married Walter Francis Montagu-Douglas-Scott, 5th Duke of Buccleuch (1806-1884) 13 August 1829 in St. George's Church, St. George Street, Hanover Square, London, Hanover Square, Greater London, England, United Kingdom.

Charlotte Montagu Douglas Scott, Duchess of Buccleuch and Queensberry VA, born Lady Charlotte Anne Thynne, was a British noblewoman.

Charlotte's paternal grandmother was a great-great-great-great-aunt of Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom (1926), which makes Charlotte that monarch's second cousin three times removed.

Charlotte was born at the Thynne family seat of Longleat in Wiltshire[1] as the daughter of Thomas Thynne, 2nd Marquess of Bath. On 13 March 1829 she married Walter Montagu-Douglas-Scott, 5th Duke of Buccleuch at St George's, Hanover Square, London. She served as Mistress of the Robes to Queen Victoria, a post later also filled by her daughter-in-law Louisa.

Among her children were William Montagu Douglas Scott, 6th Duke of Buccleuch and Henry Douglas-Scott-Montagu, 1st Baron Montagu of Beaulieu.

To her husband's distress, she converted to Roman Catholicism.[2]
