ON THIS DAY IN ROYAL HISTORY ⇒ NOVEMBER 20, 1938
Death of Queen Maud of Norway♔
Maud Charlotte Mary Victoria of Wales, the first Queen consort of the modern Kingdom of Norway, was born in London on November 26, 1869 to the Prince and Princess of Wales, later King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra of the United Kingdom. Through her mother, who was a Princess of Denmark by birth, she already had connections with Scandinavia and in time Maud would come to play a central part in the affairs of that region of Europe. It was while she was attending engagements with her mother’s family in Denmark that she first met her cousin Prince Carl of Denmark, son of King Frederick VIII. A romance developed and on July 22, 1896 the two were married at Buckingham Palace before moving to Copenhagen. Their only child, Prince Olaf (future King Olav V), was born in Norfolk, England, on July 2, 1903.
Rest in peace, darling Harry.
