She was born in Kensington Palace in London on May 24th, At the age of 18, following the death of her uncle, William IV in , Victoria succeeded to the throne and was to rule for 64 years during one of the most significant periods of change that the United Kingdom had ever witnessed. Although the Industrial Revolution had started perhaps 75 years earlier with the coming of water-powered cotton mills such as Cromford, Derbyshire , the United Kingdom’s most successful economic period was doubtless in Victorian times.
The railways of Brunel and others spread nationwide, innovative machines, products and processes of all kinds were developed, plus of course the expansion of influence worldwide through the creation of the British Empire. Whilst much of this development would not be acceptable today, at that time there were many who benefited from the generation of great wealth, sometimes to the benefit of the working class, but of course, sometimes not.

Seated with the Royal Family, her unworldly simplicity set her apart. But how many people today would recognise Alice, Princess Andrew of Greece She survived revolution and exile, mental breakdown and religious mania, evincing great personal courage to protect a Jewish family during the war — before turning her back on the trappings of royal life to become a nun. She was born Princess Alice of Battenberg in at Windsor Castle, a great-granddaughter of Queen Victoria, and raised as an English princess, although both her parents were German.
Alice was congenitally deaf but she could speak clearly. Photographs show how beautiful she was, with her upswept hair and lace gowns. Really, deeply in love. But in Greece, revolution was brewing, and shortly after Prince Philip was born in , the Greek royal family were exiled. Aged 18 months, the future Duke of Edinburgh was bundled into a makeshift cot — an orange crate — as the family escaped on a British warship.
They arrived in Paris as refugees, living on handouts from relatives. The strain took its toll on Alice, and her impassioned religious beliefs became steadily more eccentric. By she was hearing voices and believed she was having physical relationships with Jesus and other religious figures. She was diagnosed as schizophrenic, and when treatment in a Berlin clinic failed — on the advice of Sigmund Freud her womb was blasted with X-rays to cure her of frustrated sexual desires — she was admitted to a Swiss sanatorium.
On the day she left, the nine-year-old Prince Philip was taken out by his grandmother for a picnic.
