In this alternate timeline, the Treaty of Paris was never signed. This is due to William Pitt, the 1st Earl of Chatham, never resigning from his position as Prime Minister.
The Treaty of Hubertsburg, signed in 1763, loosely formed these terms:
- The colonies of Canada, Acadia, and Newfoundland were confirmed as sovereign territories of the British Empire. In addition, France agreed to grant the British control of Cuba, so long as Cuban ports remained open to French trade.
- France and Spain lost all fishing rights in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence.
- Residents of the American Colonies were granted the right to settle in the eastern half of the Territory of Louisiana; the French maintained the right to impose tariffs on American traders, but were no longer allowed to bar them from their territories.
- The pre-war status quo was resumed in Europe, albeit with minor gains to Prussia.
