Game of thrones! How Queen Victoria sat at the centre of a spider’s web of European royal connections 

With nine children of her own and 42 grandchildren, Queen Victoria sat at the centre of a spider’s web of royal connections across Europe.

Her husband Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha had dreamt of a Europe held together by family connections, and Victoria was determined to carry out his wishes.

They married their offspring into royal and noble families across the continent, earning Victoria the nickname ‘the grandmother of Europe’.

Eight of their children married into royal houses, starting with Vicky, who wed the Crown Prince of Prussia.

But after Albert’s death in 1861, Victoria retreated from public appearances and became known for wearing black and living in mourning.

Posting on Instagram, Princess Charlene wrote: ‘I am deeply saddened at the news of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, a truly great lady whose dedication and service was recognised throughout the world during the 70 years of her reign.

‘Today, my thoughts are with her family, her children, her grandchildren, her great-grandchildren and the British people.’ 

Prince Albert II also posted a tribute to the Queen on Instagram, praising the Queen’s ‘inspiring’ reign.

He wrote: ‘Her Majesty’s unwavering dedication and commitment to her duty during Her reign has always been extremely inspiring; It will long be remembered and admired.

‘She truly represented the unity and dignity of the United Kingdom throughout the last seven decades.’

Queen Elizabeth II passed away peacefully at Balmoral on Thursday afternoon at the age of 96. 

According to reports, her two oldest children King Charles and Princess Anne were by her side when she died.

Her other children, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward, as well as grandsons Princes William and Harry later joined them. 

Following her death King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia of Spain paid tribute to their distant relative with a heartfelt statement.

The Spanish Royal Family echoed sentiments from the Dutch and Swedish royals in praising the Queen’s sense of duty to her country throughout her historic 70-year reign.

Posting a letter to King Charles III on the Casa Real Twitter account, King Felipe said he would ‘dearly’ miss his Aunt Lilibet, a figure he held close.
