Sophia Dorothea was interested in art, science, literature and fashion, while Frederick William was described as an unpolished, uneducated and spartan military man with rough manners. Though he was never unfaithful to her, he was unable to win her affection. As far as can be gathered from the words he occasionally let drop, the crossing of his first love might have been the innocent cause of this; and as the object of this passion, by the directions of her mother and grandmother, treated him with harshness, where, then, could he learn to make love?

Sophia Dorothea accompanied Frederick William to meet King George I in Hanover to discuss the matter, and was left there to handle the negotiations when he returned to Berlin. However, she failed to accomplish anything, as the matter was avoided by both George I and his ministers.
The queen agreed, but made the mistake of saying so to the English ambassador Dubourguaiwhich obliged him to inform George II, who had the Prince of Wales recalled to England, La Motte arrested and imprisoned and the visit prevented, which damaged the queen and the prospect of the marriage alliance in the eyes of the king, causing a great row between them.
When the king banned the queen from communicating with her son, she corresponded with him through her daughter Wilhelmine.
This caused diplomatic incidents and Frederick William to interrupt all negotiations, after which the queen renewed them again. After having beaten Wilhelmine in her presence, the queen consented to give up on the marriage alliance with Great Britain, providing that Wilhelmine was married to the prince of Bayreuth rather than to the Duke of Saxe Weissenfels.
