She was also a supporter of the feminist movement, corresponded with Josephine Butler and visited Elizabeth Garrett before her marriage from 1866 to 1871.

Louise served as an unofficial secretary to her mother, the Queen. The question of Louise’s marriage was discussed in the late 1860’s suitors from the royal houses of prussia and denmark were suggested, but Victoria did not want her to marry a foreign prince and therefore suggested a high-ranking member of the British aristocracy. Despite opposition from members of the royal family, Louise fell in love with John Marquess of Lorne, the heir of the Duke of Argyll Victoria consented to the marriage which took place on the 21st of March 1871.

Despite a happy beginning that too drifted apart, possibly because of their childlessness and the Queen’s constraints on their activities in 1878, Lorne was appointed Governor General of Canada, a post he held 1878 to 1884.

She was the fourth daughter and sixth child of the reigning British monarch, Queen Victoria, and her husband, Prince Albert of saxe-coburg and Gotha.

Louise was brought up with the strict program of education devised by her father, Prince Albert and his friend and confidant Baron Stockman, the young children were taught practical tasks such as cooking farming, household tasks and carpentry from her early years. Louise was a talented and intelligent child, and her artistic talents were quickly recognized on his visit to Osborn house in 1863, alum Tennyson, the son of the poet Alfred Lord Tennyson, remarked that Louise could draw beautifully because of her royal rank.

An artistic career was not considered, however. The Queen first allowed her to attend art school under the tutelage of the sculptor Mary Thorneycroft and later 1863 allowed her to study at the National Art Training School. Now the Royal College of Art, South Kensington, Louise also became an able dancer and Victoria wrote after a dance that Louise danced the sword dance with more Verve and accuracy Vaughn any of her sisters.

The Queen made it a tradition that the eldest and married daughter had become her unofficial secretary, a position which Louise filled in 1866, despite the Queen’s concern that she was indiscreet.

Louise, however, proved to be good at the job Victoria wrote shortly afterwards. She is, and who would some years ago have thought it a clever, dear girl, with a fine, strong character unselfish and affectionate. However, when Louise fell in love with her brother Leopold, scooter the Reverend Robinson Duckworth 14 years of senior between 1866 and 1870, the Queen reacted by dismissing Duckworth in 1870.

He later became canon of Westminster, Abbey Louise was bored at court and by fulfilling her duties, which were little more than minor secretarial tasks such as writing letters on the Queen’s behalf, dealing with political correspondence and providing the queen with company. She had more responsibilities. Part three marriage: chapter 1 suitors as a daughter of the Queen Louise, was a desirable bride more so as she is regarded as the Queen’s most beautiful daughter by both contemporary and modern biographers.

However, she was accused by the press without substantiation of romantic Affairs. This, coupled with her liberalism and feminism, prompted the Queen to find her a husband. The choice had to suit Victoria, as well as Louise and the Queen insisted that her daughter’s husband should live near her, a promise which had also been extracted from the husband of Helena. Louise’s sister various suitors were proposed by the leading royal houses of Europe.

Louise viewed marriage too many princes and desirable and announced that she wished to marry John Campbell Marquess of Lorne, heir to the dukedom of Argyll. No marriage between a daughter of a monic and a British subject had been given official recognition since 1515, when Charles Brandon 1st Duke of Suffolk married King, Henry the eighth’s sister Mary Louise’s brother, the Prince of Wales, was strongly opposed to a marriage with a non mediatized.

Louise put her artistic talents to work and how many of her watercolor and oil paintings around the hall also installing her sculpted works, though the news that a daughter of the Queen would be viceregal consort of Canada first saw a thrill of joy burst upon the Dominion.

It being felt that the princess would be a strong link between Canadians and their sovereign. The arrival of the new governor-general and his wife was not initially welcomed by the Canadian Press, which complained about the imposition of royalty on the country’s hitherto and regal society. Relations with the press further deteriorated when Lorna’s private secretary, Francis D Winton threw for journalists off the Royal Train.

The princess was perfectly sensible during the whole time. Knowledge of Louise’s true condition might have elicited sympathy from the Canadian people as it was one member of parliament wrote except the cut in the lower part of the ear.

Louise is as usual, much down on her sisters, hope she won’t stay along or she will do.

Mischief rumours of affairs did not surround only big.
