In 1893 Princes Mary of Teck and Prince George, Duke of York embarked for their honeymoon at Sandringham. I find this an interesting situation considering that Mary's first husband-to-be, Prince Albert Victor had died there.

It seems like it could be very possible that they both remembered Albert Victor with warmth, love and a lot of good memories. Just as HM stays at Sandringham until the anniversary of her beloved father's death has passed, perhaps at Sandringham both George and Mary felt the closer ties to someone that was near and dear to their hearts.

While I agree with the sentiment, it would still be odd. Albert Victor died 18 months before they married. And was Mary's fiancé when he died. Going to the home where her former fiancé died, on her Honeymoon, seems odd. Surely there were other royal homes they could have spent it at.

It would make sense throughout their marriage that they still used the house and felt close to him there, but the honeymoon?

We have to remember too that travel wasn't what its like now back in that time period. I would imagine their choices were pretty limited as to where to go. I'd guess Sandringham, Balmoral or Windsor Castle if they were to stay somewhere that belonged to family. As they were married in July, Windsor was probably out due to being too close to London. Balmoral was out because of the annual retreat to Scotland by the monarch so that left Sandringham open and relatively private and secluded for the newly married couple.

That's just my take on it. I really don't know for sure just what honeymoons actually entailed in the late 19th century.

It's an interesting observation regarding a couple having a honeymoon at the place where the former husband / brother died. Nonetheless, in that context it is no odder than the couple marrying the former husband-to-be's brother / the brother's fiancee.

Nowadays, people's emotions are somewhat different or at least expressed differently to what they were back in those days - sentimentality is a strange thing!

Back when they wed, Balmoral was used primarily in the Autumn as a retreat, since Victoria returned from isolation there. Even if other members had been there in July,there were certainly other homes on the property that could have offered them privacy. Abergeldie castle,which is close to Balmoral was also leased by the family at the time, and a popular getaway of Mary's father in law.

It also doesn't seem uncommon for royals to have borrowed homes from others to honeymoon. Mary's son George V and Elizabeth BL honeymooned at a home in Surrey which belonged to Margaret Greville (who the Greville jewels entered the BRF from)before going to Scotland.

Sandringham was the country home of the Prince of Wales. George had an attachment to it. He spent several years before he became King living in York Cottage on the Sandringham grounds. He wasn't a sophisticated man. He liked shooting and stamp collecting. He wasn't going to do a grand tour of the continent as a honeymoon (Mary would have loved that).

Also Mary engagement to Eddy was arranged by Victoria just like her marriage to George was. So it not like her and Eddy were a love match on their own and then a great tragedy happens and he dies. Plus Mary through out her marriage to George bowed to her husband's wishes so if he wanted to go to Sandringham that is where they went.

According to the book about the royals and Sandringham, 'Sandringham Days,' the Yorks had their honeymoon at 'Bachelor Cottage', their future home, thereafter known as York Cottage, which had been made ready for them.

They arrived 'half dead' from heat and the strain of the wedding. However soon the weather changed with heavy rain and they were stuck in this rather pokey house with not much to say to each other.

Within ten days of the wedding the Prince and Princess of Wales arrived at the 'big house', accompanied by the princesses Maud and Victoria and members of the Danish Royal family. They paid many visits to the Yorks, disturbing the peace of the honeymooners, even coming to breakfast with them.
