Queen Victoria and Prince Albert were the parents of nine children – five daughters and four sons. The collective lives of their daughters span the period from 1840 – 1944. They include the Empress Frederick, the tragic Princess Alice, Grand Duchess of Hesse-Darmstadt and the Rhine, and the talented Princess Louise, Duchess of Argyll. In this talk, Colin will describe the lives of the royal sisters and their descendants.
This is the second in a series of five talks on the theme of “Royalty”. The other talks take place on: 9th April, 7th and 21st May, and 6th June. You may purchase tickets for individual events or for all five talks in the series for the reduced price of four. Most talks are on a Thursday afternoon, the final being on a Saturday and starting at the slightly earlier time of 12 noon.
The talk will last approximately one hour after which tea/coffee and cake are served (included in the price). Advance booking is highly recommended but you can pay on the door, subject to availability.
