Walesin prinssi Fredrik (Fredrik Ludvig) (1. helmikuuta 1707 – 21. maaliskuuta 1751) oli brittiläisen kuningasperheen jäsen ja kuningas Yrjö II:n ja Caroline Ansbachin vanhin poika. Hän oli kruununperimysjärjestyksessä ensimmäinen, mutta kuoli ennen isäänsä, joten valtaistuimelle nousi Fredrikin vanhin poika, Yrjö III.

Fredrik oli naimisissa Augusta Saksi-Gothan kanssa ja heille syntyi lapset: prinsessa Augusta 31. elokuuta 1737 kruununperijä George William Frederick (Yrjö III) 4. kesäkuuta 1738 prinssi Edward Augustus 14. maaliskuuta 1739 prinsessa Elisabeth Caroline 30. joulukuuta 1740 prinssi William Henry 14. marraskuuta 1743 prinssi Henry Frederick 27. marraskuuta 1745 prinsessa Louisa Anne 8. maaliskuuta 1749 prinssi Frederick William 13. toukokuuta 1750 prinsessa Karoliina Matilda 11. heinäkuuta 1751 ____________________________________________________________________________ Information on Clivedon House, Taplow Buckinghamshire England Frederick, Prince of Wales Between 1737 and 1751 the estate was leased to Frederick, Prince of Wales by Orkney's heirs after his death. From 1737 till 1824, the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Countesses of Orkney and their respective families owned and (usually) occupied Cliveden. It was sold in 1824. Frederick, Prince of Wales was a tenant of Cliveden and the son of George II. Frederick was the father of George III. After falling out with his father, Frederick used Cliveden to enable him to withdraw from life at the royal court. At Cliveden he established a family home for his wife Augusta and their children. It was during the Prince's tenure of the house that Rule, Britannia! (an aria by the English composer Thomas Arne) was first performed in public in the cliff-side amphitheatre at Cliveden on 1 August 1740. It was played as part of a masque to celebrate the third birthday of his daughter, Augusta. It is believed that it was at Cliveden in 1751 that the Prince received a blow to the chest from a cricket ball while playing in the grounds; the resulting infection proved fatal After his death, Frederick's family left Cliveden and the estate. The details are recorded in a document compiled by William Waldorf Astor in 1894 called "The Historical Descent of Cliveden".
