We appear to have lost sight of Prince Albert as the thread has veered off into an ongoing discussion of member's favourite actors and current crushes.
Posts of no relevance have been removed and posts relating to "The Young Victoria" are now in the Royal Library film thread.

From all I have read on him and Victoria, it seems he was quite sensative and she was very forward. There have been hints that his death was, apart from the obvious illness typhoid, the result of being overworked by Victoria and the strain of dealing with her ever present temper.

How exactly is talking about the actors who played Prince Albert in movies relating to Prince Albert "off topic" in a Prince Albert thread?

There is no doubt that for Victoria there was no one as wonderful, good, handsome etc as her Albert. She let him work himself to death over official papers though.
Whether his children thought the same I am not so sure.

Didnt Victoria blame her son for Albert's death? Because Albert had to travel to have a talk with him about his idiotic behavior?

Exactly, Victoria blamed their eldest son, the Prince of Wales, for
Albert's early death because he travelled to see Edward At Cambridge when he was ill with a cold or possibly pneumonia. The weather was foul and Albert soon succombed to the illness. Two weeks later. Victoria said she shuddered every time she saw Edward.

Helen Rappaport: 150 Years After His Death, Prince Albert Remains Uncelebrated

I agree with this article.Albert was very underrated and should deserve more attention.

Interesting article. His death does seem to be overlooked today but it is 150 years later. I was amused to read about draping the beehives in black as a way to tell the bees that there has been a death in the family.

I like Albert and he was a fantastic Consort to Victoria, according to some he was the one who ran the country while he was married to her. I am definitely a fan of Albert despite the fact that he was pretty. I wonder if one of the reasons Albert is so uncelebrated is because of WWI and WWII and the fact that the BRF want to ignore their German history.

Queen Victoria's Sapphire and Diamond Tiara was designed by Prince Albert as a gift.
In Kings & Queens of Great Britain, David Soud wrote:

In 1848, while revolutions swept across the continent, Albert spoke eloquently for reform. His position as president of the Society for the Improvement of the Conditions of the Labouring Classes made his position clear.
For his daughter Princess Victoria's coming-out, Prince Albert designed her dress.
He designed all the lace flounces, ribbons, and a wreath of convolvulus and jewels in the Princess Royal's hair.
Prince Albert had a Christmas tree brought from Germany.

Prince Albert sent decorated trees to schools in Windsor and to local army barracks.

The Oddment Emporium, Christmas with the Saxe-Coburg and Gothas When...
with a print of the Royal Family gathered about the Christmas tree.

And not to mention, just at his death the civil war in the US errupted which cut off the cotton flow to the mills of England. A most inauspicious time for QV to take to her bed as the Widow of Windsor.

A nice gesture by a loving father but Albert was perhaps not the man of superb taste he believed himself to be. He certainly enjoyed designing jewellery, clothing, rooms' interiors, etc. The results could be seen at Balmoral and Buckingham Palace.

Perhaps he was also responsible for the poodle motif on a reticule (handbag) of Victoria's when the couple visited Napoleon and Eugenie in France!

In the last few years there have been various other theories put forward for Albert's death, stomach cancer and Crohn's disease amongst them. He certainly was overly conscientious and may well have also worried himself into an early grave.

He was certainly quite a delicate man. I've never believed that Prince Albert died from typhoid. However, I have read the theory of his last illness being Crohn's disease before. I guess the definitive truth will never be known now.

It seems as if it was typhoid, but the story is that his heatlh had been getting a lot worse and that he had aged rapidly in the last years of his life. He worked hard, was a worrier and possibly wore himself out and was easy prey to a germ. he got chilled and wet, when he went to see Bertie to talk to him about his fling with Nellie Clifden and became ill.

And in fact the article posted above dates back to December 2011. Not real news.

I've deleted a number of posts because they contained unsubstantiated gossip/speculation. Please remember that one of our forum rules states, that opinions should be backed up with facts from reliable sources. Thanks.
