Special Collectors Set 12
of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert
Limited to 350 Sets - Issued in 1976
Victoria, whose nickname was “Pussy”, had a quiet and reflective nature, rather like her father. She went on to marry Frederick III, Emperor of Germany
Princess Alice was kind, thoughtful, and considerate. She married Louis IV, Grand Duke of Hesse-Darmstadt, and the couple went on to have seven children. She died at the early age of 35.
Helena was nicknamed “Lenchen”, and was known by this name for the rest of her life. She married Christian, Prince of Schleswig-Holstein
Tall, handsome, clever and high spirited, Louise was the only one of Victoria’s daughters not to marry a foreign prince. She found life at Inverary Castle with her husband John Campbell, Duke of Argyll, rather restrictive, although she enjoyed more freedom than she had been accustomed to at home
Princess Beatrix was known as “Benjamin the best-loved”, and was very close to her mother. Even after her marriage to Henry of Battenburg, she rarely left the Queen’s side, and was her constant companion
