Princess Charlotte and which Prince of Prussia?

I understand that c1814 Princess Charlotte of Wales was smitten with a Prussian Prince, but that her father vetoed the match.

However there seems to be some confusion as to which prince. Some versions have it As Fredrich, nephew of King Frederick William III, and others as Augustus, gt-nephew of Frederick William II?

Has anyone any definite info as to which it was?

It's apparently not known for sure. Author Charles Greville though it was Prince Augustus while historian Arthur Aspinall thought it was Prince Frederick. In any case both father and daughter finally agreed on Leopold of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfield.
