Obviously Victoria wanted him to have a fiancée close in age, so there would be no delays in the marriage.. and so that they had the best chance of happiness, and getting on well.. as she DID believe that Bertie was a wild young man, who had shown that he was prone to his terrible great uncles' vices.. and she wanted to get him married young and to a pretty girl who had a chance of weaning him away from "bad ways". It didn't work. Bertie was fond of Alix, she was very beautiful.. but she wasn't sophisticated or that lively mentally, and he soon moved on to other ladies...

Albert Edward, Prince of Wales got a tattoo. He got five crosses forming a Crusader's Jerusalem cross on his forearm.

And I especially like how it pinpoints both Bertie's bad sides and his good sides.

Did Queen Alexandra try to influence her husband's family and British ministers to favor Greek and Danish interests?

I seem to remember that Alexandra had supported Denmark in the Schleswig war of 1864, which irritated her mother-in-law, Queen Victoria, who decided to support Germany. Nevertheless though, I don't believe that Alexandra tried to have any political influence.

The Museum of Freemasonry will next month put jewels owned by Edward VII, who was Grand Master before he ascended to the throne on display for the British public, explaining in full for the first time his long term relationship with the brothers.

The exhibition will see some his personal jewels, left to the museum after his death, put on display to the wider public for the first time, in an effort to tell the story of how he used his membership to mix more widely with society than he could in royal life.

Around 150 jewels, including those once owned by the Duke of Connaught, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Rudyard Kipling, will also go on display in what the museum calls the “first major exhibition of masonic jewels in the UK”.

Hmmm interesting dress, it says that it was probably created between 1908 - 1910. The dress is black, I wonder if it is just a fancy black dress or if she was in mourning.
