Forgotten Duties

Post by Karen on Sat 19 Feb 2011 - 12:28

EUROPEAN GOSSIP.
Queen Victoria Cunningly Introduces Prince Albert Victor.

A Gaping Boy without Tact.

LONDON, Feb. 1.

A little comedy enacted at the opening of Parliament by the queen was not without its purpose. It was probably intended to convey that an allowance is to be shortly demanded for the eldest son of the Prince of Wales, the future king of England, Prince Albert Victor, known in society by the name of Prince Edward. Attention was particularly called to the prince by a prominent position being given him. This was one of those arrangements for which the fertile brain of the queen is unequaled. Prince Albert Victor had been instructed in his duties, but he grievously ignored them, and his aunt, the Princess Beatrice of England and of Battenburg, had more than once to recall him to a sense of what was required of him. After handing her majesty up the steps of the throne he slyly retreated in search of obscurity, as if ashamed of his smart Hussar uniform, but his tactics were observed and he was brought back into full prominence. By the time his royal grandmother was ready to descend from the throne he had again forgotten his duty; his eyes were star-gazing. So Princess Beatrice once more brought him to his senses, whereupon he took hold of the queen's hand and conducted her. It is evident, says a radical society weekly, that the queen wished to remind everybody present that he is our future king, and that as yet he has not a penny to bless himself with.
