The service—led secretly and with unrelieved despair at Osborne House—was portrayed by the Queen as “all the more a memorial service than a wedding”.

One of her associations, the Princess Alice Women’s Guild, took over a large part of the everyday running of the state’s tactical clinics. Because of this action, Queen Victoria became worried about Alice’s explicitness about clinical and, specifically, gynecological, matters. In 1871, she wrote to Alice’s more youthful sister, Princess Louise, who had as of late wedded: “Don’t allow Alice to siphon you. Be extremely quiet and wary about your ‘inside'”.
