Monologue about Prince Albert Victor
In 1892 Prince Eddy died. "No two brothers could have loved each other more than we did," his brother Prince George wrote to his mother, Alexandra, Princess of Wales. George continued: "Alas! It is only now that I have found out how deeply I have loved him."
After Prince Albert Victor's demise, Princess Mary of Teck became to the press the sole object of the nation's sympathy as a widowed maid. Under an ancient statute for a princess betrothed to a future heir to the throne, there were reports that she could not marry for five years. If these reports are true, could Mary have gotten engaged to Prince Eddy's brother, Prince George?
