Why all the Royal books? December 14th is why! Three deaths and the birth of an unexpected King occurred on this most auspicious royal day:

  • December 14, 1861–Death of Prince Albert (the Prince Consort) QueenVictoria’s beloved husband.
  • December 14, 1878 Death of Princess Alice of Hesse (2nd Daughter of Queen Victoria and Great-Grandmother of Prince Philip)
  • December 14, 1895 Birth of Prince Albert Frederick Arthur George of York, later King George VI (father of the current Queen)
  • December 14, 1945 Death of the Countess of Southesk, aka HH Princess Maud of Fife (Granddaughter of King Edward VII)

Also on December 10, 1936, Edward VIII abdicated.  There have been several recent births and a death or too in the family in December since the Abdication as well.
