Clementina Maria Sophia Walkinshaw (1720 – 27 November 1802) was the mistress of Charles Edward Stuart.

Born into a respectable Scottish family, Clementina began to live with the Prince in November 1752 and remained his mistress for eight years. Their child Charlotte was born in 1753. In 1760, the Prince's father, James Francis Edward Stuart, helped her escape with her daughter to a convent and began to support her. After his death in 1766 she had an allowance from Charles's brother Cardinal Stuart. Charlotte's father legitimated her in 1783, and the next year she joined him in Florence and looked after him until his death. Charlotte died in 1789, leaving Clementina 50,000 livres and an annuity, but Cardinal Stuart insisted on Clementina signing a "quittance" renouncing any further claim.

Clementina Walkinshaw brought up her three grandchildren and lived until 1802, in her later years taking up residence in Switzerland.
