In life nothing happens by accident. we must remember that there are no good that lasts forever. And evil that never ends. God works in mysterious ways. So I just have to accept what happens because we do not know what we gain by things go this way. Not always what initially seems an award is the. This happens when we fall in love, when we found out a new job when a friend disappears or when someone leaves for ever.

with Wilhelm, both had a difficult relationship. Wilhelm was born with a damaged arm, while Victoria almost died during the birth (it was her first one).
Victoria and Friedrich wanted too much from him and Victorias MIL Augusta took him under her wing. Wilhelm was conservative and his parents liberals, who were so much different to the rest of Prussia. When Friedrich died because of cancer, Wilhelm placed his mother under house arrest, because her English background could be a danger for his reign (but I think he took revenge). I forgot which daughter it was, but when Vicky died, Wilhelm locked the door, so that this daughter couldn´t take leave.  thumbsdown



When I see the pics, I can´t understand why it is today so out to have meat on the bones? Victoria was so pretty! Look at this Kate!

Well done and thankyou! thankyou

I'm trying to find info on the relationship between Wilhiem and his mother (Princess Vicky).
I was unaware he was awful to her and WHY he treated her that way? Something to do with her being of English blood I know, but to treat his own mother in such a way, must have more to it.Anyone know details please and thankyou?

Beatings and tantrums – how to bring up children the Victoria and Albert way

Quote
There's not a massive amount to go on, visually, to fill three hours of television – a Landseer painting to pan slowly over, a few very early family photos, a wander round the grounds of Osborne House. There is a little light reconstruction, but it's very unobtrusive, props – nine pairs of boots lined up in ascending size, a candle, billiard cue on ball etc – more than people. That's my kind of reconstruction, the sort you hardly notice, not the sort you laugh at.

Queen Victoria's ravishing daughter, a secret love and a sex scandal the Royal Family's STILL trying to cover up
 http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2508123/The-Mystery-Princess-Louise-Queen-Victorias-daughter-secret-love-Royal-sex-scandal.html#ixzz2koyKheAk
Quote
Like all researchers into the Royal Family, Hawksley applied to visit the royal archives at Windsor. To her surprise, she was told that Princess Louise’s files were ‘closed’ to the public.
Next, she tried several times to get access to the archives of Louise’s husband’s family — the Argylls — at Inveraray, Scotland, but again she was firmly rebuffed.
Stranger still, she ran against the same brick wall when she asked to see papers connected to people Louise had known — from fellow artists to servants and friends.
And Hawksley wasn’t the only one who wondered what was going on. The archivists she approached at the National Gallery, the Royal Academy and the Victoria & Albert Museum, as well as at various overseas collections in Malta, Bermuda and Canada, were frankly bemused to discover that all the papers she’d requested had been ‘removed’ to Windsor.
By then, Hawksley was all the more determined to get to the bottom of this most tantalising of royal mysteries.
Why, she wanted to know, had the detailed records of the most popular of Victoria’s daughters been locked away in the archives? What was it about her that was deemed too scandalous or dangerous to be revealed?
Fortunately, enough clues remained to untangle Louise’s remarkable story.  Victoria made no secret of the fact that she was disappointed in her children. As babies, they bored and even revolted her; as children, they were dressed up like dolls to be formally presented to her a few times a day.
By the time her sixth child and fourth daughter, Louise, came along, the Queen had all but lost interest. For the most part, the tall, flaxen-haired child was either belittled or ignored — a misfortune that evidently marked  her deeply.  
She reacted by often misbehaving, which led the Queen to dismiss her frequently in her letters and diaries as ‘backward’, ‘difficult’, ‘awkward’, ‘naughty’ or ‘rebellious’.

find it funny that the royal family really hasn't changed at all from the past

^The rich is have the most dirty secrets ,



The turbulent relationship between Princess Vicky - Queen Victoria's daughter - and her son Wilhelm gave the future Kaiser a bitter hatred of England, claims new documentary



When Queen Victoria died in 1901 in the arms – or rather, the one good arm – of her eldest grandchild, Kaiser Bill, it was a touching scene that few would have cared to remember a few years later when Britain and Germany were embroiled in a war that devastated Europe.
The power-hungry Kaiser, who had rushed to join the family at Victoria’s deathbed, liked to boast he was her favourite grandchild (wishful thinking on his part), even as he aspired to wrest naval supremacy from Britain by building a fleet of battleships in the North Sea.
But although he retained some residue of childhood fondness for his grandmother, he hated his English mother, Victoria’s eldest daughter Princess Victoria, known to her family as Vicky.

Now this highly dysfunctional relationship – which engendered a boundless hatred in the Kaiser for his mother’s country – is the subject of a Channel 4 documentary Queen Victoria And The Crippled Kaiser.
Vicky was only 17 when she married Prussia’s dashing Crown Prince Friedrich, known as Fritz, in 1858, a passionate love match that also fulfilled the dynastic dreams of her German father Prince Albert. After becoming pregnant only three months later, she underwent a traumatic breech delivery.
A Caesarean – with extremely high maternal mortality at the time – was out of the question and the future Kaiser Wilhelm II had to be wrenched forcefully into the world. Three days later, a nursemaid noticed that his damaged left arm hung limply at his side.

It's not quite as simple as that; WWI came about due to trouble brewing between countries and empires for years, alliances and misalliances, clashes, misunderstandings, and deep-seated social and ethnic issues, etc.
But yes, William had some deep-seated issues that couldn't have helped much.  sigh

Prince Alfred of Edinburgh's first choice for a wife had been Princess Frederika of Hanover, the daughter of King George V of Hanover. Queen Victoria forbade the match. Frederika's father was blind. The blindness had been hereditary for three generations.
