Edward VII Celebrating Queen Victoria’s Death? News spread fast that recently our beloved Queen Victoria’s reign ended on January 22, 1901 when she died at the old age of 81. Her successor was her eldest son Albert Edward, Prince of Wales who is now known as King Edward VII. Sources informed us that newly crowned King Edward VII was eager to be king because during his mother’s reign he was often excluded from having political power. Although King Edward VII was thought of as outgoing, and likeable, the public is convinced that he has been waiting for his mother to die so that he can finally have his chance to be king. An insider informed us that he did not meet the expectations of his mother and father as a child so that might be his motive for wanting his mother dead.

Tea Time with Prince Albert Everyone knows you are originally from Germany, but we all want to know why you were in England when you first met Queen Victoria? I am from Germany but the reason for me going to England was to pay respects to Victoria when she was Pronounced Queen of the United Kingdom. Although I know that my father, Ernest I, Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, had different intentions. My father was hoping to arrange a marriage for me and Victoria and in the end he got his wish. We all know that you loved the great Queen Victoria, but was it really love at first sight as everyone made it out to be? Yes, for me at least I was completely in awe of Victoria’s beauty when I first laid eyes on her. Not only her physical beauty but also on the inside. She is just a beautiful person with a big heart who always wants to help people and do good things in the world. Are you any help to Queen Victoria when it came to politics? I would say I am a bit of help to Victoria when it comes to politics. I think she values my opinion because I have a background in politics because I study it. So I know a thing or two about politics so yes, Victoria does sometimes look to me for political help and I try to help her as best as I can. What were your favorite or best subject(s) in school as a child? Since I come from a royal family I obviously got the best education as a child, I had the opportunity to study many subjects. Though, I have to say that Geology was the subject that had me fascinated. In fact Victorian and I am fascinated by the works of Charles Lyell. I even want Victoria to consider a knighthood for Charles Lyell. Though I never pursued any work dealing with geology instead I made my advances in electrical science. We all know about your project called The Great Exhibition. What was the purpose of it? What did you want to accomplish? The Great Exhibition, which was housed at the revolutionary Crystal Palace, was a project that I started that was meant to honor and respect the technological advancements being made at the time.

Dear Editor, One topic in this magazine that really hooked me was the interview with Prince Albert. It is very well known that Prince Albert is not from England, he is in fact from Germany. The reason He was in England was to pay his respects to Victoria as she had just been crowned Queen of the United Kingdom. It was the talk of the town when Albert and Victoria got married in 1840, shortly after his visit to England. The fact that Albert was from Germany and not England was a very controversial matter. Queen Victoria was expected to marry an English man. The public was initially very surprised maybe a hint disappointed that she chose to marry an “outsider” from Germany. Eventually Prince Albert became respected because of his accomplishments such as his project called The Great Exhibition. Albert was also respected when people realized that he wasn’t using Queen Victoria for power or fame because Prince Albert had already established himself. Since many men wanted to marry queens so they can have their thoughts and ideas spread. So Prince Albert was unlike the others because it did not go unnoticed that Queen Victoria and Prince Albert truly were head over heels in love with each other. This topic is often forgotten and it pleases me as well as many others that you included this topic. Thank you for reading.

Sincerely, Judith Bateman
