Fact of the Day: Royal Family Worries

When Queen Victoria's eldest son (the future Edward VII) was caught having numerous affairs with women, both Queen Victoria and her husband Prince Albert were quite upset about it. The Prince of Wales had a long talk with his father about it, and not long afterward, Prince Albert died. Queen Victoria went into mourning for the rest of her life and always blamed her son for her husband's death.

  3. Maybe that's why she (as well as the era named after her) has such a reputation for prudishness.

  5. "I never can, or shall, look at him without a shudder," Queen Victoria is said to have written about the Prince of Wales to her daughter, Victoria Princess Royal. I'd far rather be a commoner!
