These days, she'd have been offered grief counselling and put on anti-depressants. Of course, Queen Victoria being Queen Victoria, she'd likely have refused to do so.

The Queen Victoria is one of my favorite Queens.
I like to read things about the Queen's life and its history.
Queen Elizabeth II is the leveling of Queen Victoria. Two large Queens.

The drawing of The Princess Royal holding the ball of wool is precious. Imagine if little Victoria was in a photograph of color.

Did Victoria, Duchess of Kent have a favorite grandchild amongst Queen Victoria's nine children?

Given that the Duchess and Victoria were estranged for most of her married life the real question is how much contact she even had with her British grandchildren?

The Wikipedia article on Princess Victoria of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld expressed: When the Queen's first child, the Princess Royal, was born, the Duchess of Kent unexpectedly found herself welcomed back into Victoria's inner circle.
Is this then a FALSE statement?

By all accounts, after reconciling with Victoria after Vicky was born, she was quite the doting grandmother. At least in her last years she would have been closest to Alice who nursed her.

Albert, Victoria's husband, was, after all, blood nephew to the Duchess of Kent. There's evidence, cited in Elizabeth Longford's book on Queen Victoria, that he deprecated the estrangement and to a large extent blamed it on the influence of Baroness Lehzen, Victoria's beloved governess.

Although he recognised the support Lehzen had given Victoria during her embattled younger years, but he was determined that she should be retired off. There was a real battle of wills between Albert and Victoria in the first years of their married life, but Albert won. Lehzen was retired back to Germany with a pension and the Duchess of Kent was placed in what Albert regarded as her rightful position in the life of the Royal family.

My research would suggest it was more when Princess Victoria herself became a mother. Albert tried to bring about a rapproachment but other than major family occasions they were still estranged until Victoria became a grandmother herself and realised what he mother had been missing with her children.

Queen Victoria became a grandmother in January 1859 when Crown Princess Vicky's first child, the future Wilhelm II, was born in Germany. Neither she nor Albert saw their grandson for some time (at Coburg on a summer visit in 1859 and from July to September 1861 in England.) There was therefore no regular grandmotherly fussing about to be done on the Queen's side.

The Duchess of Kent died in March 1861, while Wilhelm was still only two and Charlotte a baby. Vicky was expecting her third child when her father lay dying in the December of 1861, so it's not as though her mother was experiencing the daily company of hordes of grandchildren and enjoying the sensation, before the Duchess's death.

Yes, Victoria probably did harbour some resentment for years over Sir John Conroy and the 'Kensington System' of her youth. Yes, she did almost have a nervous breakdown early in 1861 (after the Duchess's death) about how badly she had treated her mother in those early years after she had come to the throne. There was obviously enormous guilt there.

However, with Albert's guidance and when her own family was growing in the 1840's, she and her mother did try to patch their relationship up and the Duchess did become part of her daughter's family, to all intents and purposes. She wasn't barred from family life at all.

As John Van Der Kiste states in 'Queen Victoria's children.' (Pages 40-41) ' 'Grandma Kent' as the children called her, had been loved and respected by all the family since Albert's tireless peacemaking efforts soon after their marriage, and since the removal of Lehzen and Conroy from the royal household.'
