Charlotte Mitchell (born Edna Winifred Mitchell; 23 July 1926 – 2 May 2012) was an English actress and poet.
She was once (allegedly) the girlfriend of Peter Sellers, hence her appearance in The Goon Show episodes Ye Bandit of Sherwood Forest as Maid Marion and Tales of Montmartre as Seagoon's love interest, Fifi. Charlotte Mitchell was married to the actor Philip Guard  and was the mother of 3 children, actors Christopher Guard  and Dominic Guard  and animator and novelist Candy Guard. Charlotte lived in West London during the later part of her life and continued to be active as a poet.
She appeared on BBC Radio with Ian Carmichael in The Small, Intricate Life of Gerald C. Potter. Carmichael played Gerald C. Potter, mystery writer, while she played Diana, his wife, who, under the pseudonym of Miss Magnolia Badminton, wrote romantic novels.
She also played, on radio, the Dowager Duchess (Lord Peter Wimsey's mother) in the radio adaption of Strong Poison that starred Ian Carmichael as Peter Wimsey. On television, she played Amy the housekeeper in The Adventures of Black Beauty (1972–74).
Her poetry was published in collections such as "Twelve Burnt Saucepans", "Looking Round Dangerously", "I Want to Go Home" and "Just in Case". These provided the basis of a series of popular programmes on BBC Radio 4 in which she read her own work. Her poetry is often requested and read on the BBC Radio 4 programme Poetry Please, and one of her poems was chosen by Judi Dench and Michael Williams in their joint BBC Radio 4 With Great Pleasure.
She died in Chiswick, London, on 2 May 2012 of pneumonia. She had previously battled breast cancer and myeloma.
