I found out that Princess Alice,who was Victoria’s 3rd child, died in 1878. Reply Rusty July 15, 2012 Ahhh…the royalty of Europe. Nasty, inbred buncha parasites they are. Reply Litenarata July 16, 2012 Geez dude. They’re just humans like you and me. They didn’t ask to be born into the life they got. Reply Richard Wills July 16, 2012 They didn’t ask, they demanded, at gun point. Reminds me of a 60s/70s? British caper film. One of the characters was a young layabout Earl who was impoverished. So he wound up as a bank robber. When asked why he wound up choosing to be a violent criminal, his reply was; “How do you think we got to be Earl’s in the first place?” Reply Red Cardinal July 17, 2012 >>They didn’t ask, they demanded, at gun point. Really? Like to quote some examples from this alternate realisty version of Europe you’re describing Reply Leah Allen July 17, 2012 The ones with Princesses Elizabeth and Alix of Hesse kind of make me sad. Princess Elizabeth was killed by the Bolsheviks during the Russian Revolution–they tossed her down a mine shaft along with a grenade. And her sister Alix of Hesse went on to become the tsarina of Russia. She was also killed by the Bolsheviks in 1918–shot along with her husband and five children. Rusty and Richard, I don’t care what you think of them–no one deserves to die the way these two women did. Reply Dave Moore September 15, 2012 Take a look at the 9th photo down. The girl in the bottom left is the female version of Prince William! Obviously related, but geez, that is some likeness. Reply csolan October 24, 2012 I LOVE how in the photo of the Queen sitting down with her three grandchildren and daughter standing in a line behind her, the dog at her feet has the exact same expression as the queen. It’s said that dogs and their owners usually start to look alike, and I guess in this case it’s true! ReplyReport user jessica.. November 17, 2012 Was there a princess Lacey?
