Prince Albert

Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha was born on 26th August 1819 in Coburg. He was Victoria’s first cousin (the son of her Mother’s brother).

The pair first met in 1836, when Albert travelled to London for Princess Victoria’s 17th birthday. In the years that followed, Albert wrote to Victoria many times. He visited in the autumn of 1839 and, five days after his arrival at Windsor, Victoria proposed, as custom dictated. Victoria’s intention to marry was declared formally to the Privy Council on 23rd November, and they married on 10th February 1840 at the Chapel Royal, St James’s Palace.
