It was a friend of mine, Princess Maria Cristina of Savoia Aosta, grand daughter of Hélène, who lent the letters by Eddy to her first cousin, Prince Michael of Greece. She did so, she told me, in order to rehabilitate the memory of the Duke of Clarence.

It is the true story of how Prince Albert, Duke of Clarence and Avondale and grandson of Queen Victoria, wooed Princess Hélène of Orléans, whose father was a pretender to the French throne.

I have read all of these books lol and more...

Queen v only went to open Parliament after Albert died when she needed to obtain dowries or incomes for kids...


As far as Maud...she was just not very interesting, IMO. All she ever thought about was getting back to England when she was Queen of Norway. I think she was a hypochondriac...she used her health as a reason to try to spend almost all of of her time in England...

Queen V. Was probably the most self-centered and selfish person on earth...but she wrote highly entertaining letters...the books of letter between the Queen and Vicki is great...also the one between Queen and Hessian granddaughter Victoria.
