I really read, on the Net, that, once that , had the story QV was illegitimate be true, he should be the current king of Great Britain, now as he descends directly from the Hanovers, u c, he's really a Hanoverian Prince. No rumours about him.....

Hm... it seems unlikely that the Duke of Kent sent her wife back home immediately after their wedding. And did he have some chronic illness?

Moreover, the Duke of Clarence was set to beget an heir, who would have barred the issue of the Kents from succeeding; and the Grand Old Duke of York was still alive.

One successful hijacking of a thread, I'd like to say... ;-)

No, the Hanoverian kings would be quite interesting, with the public urination, the assaultive behavior, etc... Maybe the British have lost something by having a queen who is restrained in public.

I've had a look at the possibility of splitting this thread so that the discussion about Queen Victoria's ancestry can be split out into its own thread, but the earlier posts were too intertwined with on-topic posts about Diana, so I don't think a thread split is going to work.

If anybody is interested in continuing the discussion about Queen Victoria, please start a thread in the main British forum or add your posts to the current thread about Victoria. In the meantime, let's get this thread back on topic.

Thanks.

How can you possibly say she was insane? That's a bit of an over statement don't you think?

I trust you when you say that Diana came from a very royal background, but I still don't think she was more royal that the Queen or Charles (and definitely not more than Philip). The likely thing is that she was rather equal to them.
Although I couldn't tell you where I read it, I do remember reading that Diana had more Blue Blood than Charles.

Are you sure it wasn't question of British blue blood? Because as Tiarapin (and Emily) underlined it, it's undoubtedly the case when we talk about British blue blood.
I was speaking of blue blood in general.

no!! I did not mean to say Diana was insane, sorry, I used the wrong words, I meant she was driven to desperation, to binge on food and then vomit it, to anorexia, to trying to take her own life, like when she fell on purpose on the stairs , though she was pregnant with william, it makes me shiver when I think, as witnesses said years after, that charles just lokked at her, when she had fallen down the stairs, then, without a word, he lft to Camilla's House..... what kind of man can behave like that ?

it was read everywhere when they announced the engagement- I still remember what I read in our local newspaper: " Prince Charles is to marry the girl from the Castle next door"-

As Di descended from the Scottish Stuarts, we can talk about Scottish Blue Blood, the first was the James I's lover, Barbara Villiers, Di's lineage starts from her and her issue from James I.

I've split the latest bunch of posts about Queen Victoria's haemophilia gene from this thread and merged them with the thread Alicky started in the main British forum. It can be found here:

Queen Victoria and Haemophilia

Barbara Villiers, the Duchess of Cleveland, was the mistress of Charles II, not James I; as far as I know, James I had no mistresses... But he had a question mark hanging over his legitimacy.

James I was homosexual. He had lovers, such as George Villiers who became Duke of Buckingham. He was also said to have had an affair with a distant male cousin Esme Stuart.

I don't think that James I and that particular Villiers had children together...

About that episode: it may not have been on purpose. In a biography of Diana's, one witness (a footman I think) told that Charles and her were arguing and that she felt by accident. Later she used that episode in her PR war with Charles, transforming it in an suicide attempt.
I personally tend to believe this version as the book I'm referring (Diana, L'enqute if I remember correctly) to was not written by a friend of Diana's nor Charles' and was pretty objective (not gossip stuff). Plus, I doubt she would have purposely endangered her son's life. She was a too good mother for that.

You don't just turn bulimic, you don't just turn into a self-mutilator, because of a bad marriage. And what witnesses said Charles just looked at her, and left to Camilla's house? I don't believe anyone else that was there at the fall aside from Diana ever spoke out about it. And I have never heard that version too, I've heard (one of) Diana's versions of him saying she was crying wolf and then going out to ride or hunt, but never to leave to Camilla's. Besides, Diana told quite a few different versions of that event over the years, including it being an accident.

I think Mapple meant George Villiers lol. Charles II's Barbara Villiers had several of the King's kids didn't she?
