[4/7] Royal Pairings - Queen Victoria/Prince Albert

I need not tell you that since we left, all my thoughts have been with you at Windsor, and that your image fills my whole soul. Even in my dreams I never imagined that I should find so much love on earth. How that moment shines for me when I was close to you, but with your hand in mine! Those days flew by so quickly, but our separation will fly equally so. Ernest wishes me to say a thousand nice things to you. With promises of unchanging love and devotion, your ever true Albert.

August 27, 1968  Death of Princess Marina, Duchess of Kent.

On this day, the Greek Princess deeply respected and loved not only by the British public but also by the entire Commonwealth, died at Kensington palace from a brain tumour at the age of 61. She had aroused affection and adulation, showing a devotion to her job that almost went beyond the call of duty. She made a decisive contribution to the evolution of the subtle relationship between the Royal Family and the British public. It was in keeping the magic and mystery of the monarchy alive that the Queen Mother and Prince Marina were so successful.


' She continued to uphold those tenets of duty and dignity and courage that were part of her Royal upbringing and to enhance an ideal of dynastic harmony that seemed to belong to another age. '
