Today in Royal History is the 53rd Death Anniversary of Augusta Viktoria, Queen of Portugal and Algarves. She was married to the exiled King of Portugal, Manuel II and had no children. 7 years after her husband's death, she married Count Robert Douglas, a Swedish noble.

When and where did Augusta Viktoria first meet Count Robert Douglas?

Wikipedia (yes, I know its not the most reliable source) calls him her "jugendfreund" so they'd probably known each other for a long time. To call Count Douglas a Swedish noble is only half the truth. His grandmother was a morganactic daughter of Grand Duke Ludvig of Baden and he had extensive estates in Southern Germany. His relationship with the royal families of the area was close and he even sheltered the Baden family after they had escaped Karlsruhe during the revolution.
The Douglas family still own Langenstein Castle and other estates in the area and Robert's grand nieces married into the houses of Wittelsbach and Marlborough.

Did Manuel still live in Kensington Palace?
I found this story that says the following:

"He is making preparations to forsake the temporary abode in Richmond in wich he took up is residence pending his return in triumph to Lisbon, and to take up permanent quarters in the most aristocratic flats in the whole world - Kensington Palace."

"It is in these circumstances that King George has come forward wit an offer of a suite of rooms in Kensongton Palace for Manuel and is mother."

I am reading and have lots of interesting information.

Thanks for posting the clip. Manuel II would have been a much-loved King, I think. Along with Austria's Emperor Karl, Romania's King Mihai and Bulgaria's Tsar Simeon II and Italy's Umberto II, maybe Constantine II as well, he is one of a group of potentially good Kings whose reigns were cut short.

As the last king of Portugal lived exile.

A few hours after the Republic was proclaimed in Lisbon on October 5, 1910, the royal family departs from the fishermen's beach in Ericeira on the yacht Amelia. King Manuel II lived the rest of his days in exile in England.

On October 5, 1910, the implantation of the republic in Portugal was proclaimed, after the victory of the revolution. On that day, the royal family was already gathered at the Palace of Mafra and it is on the fishermen's beach in Ericeira, that embarks on the yacht Amelia still with unknown destination.

The demise of Manuel was suffocation by an abnormal swelling in the vocal folds of his larynx.
