I hope that either William or Harry will have a girl and call her Alice. I think this remarkable woman deserves to have great-great-grandchild called after her. Alice Victoria Mary :-) wouldn't that sound nice?

(Princess Alice, second daughter of QV and grandmother of Princess Alice of Greece, was also an interesting character - so were all her daughters).

I must say that I read Vickers' biography some months ago and was surprised to see Dickie Mountbatten so nice with his sisters - and his wife really impressed me (even after reading Lady Pamela Hicks' memoirs I like her). I didn't expect anything like it from him.

Prince Philip really had a difficult childhood and youth. I admire him for his total lack of self pity. I remember seeing a picture of the terribly sad funeral of his sister Cecile and her family where he walks alone, very young.  He gave to his children and grandchildren a stability that he didn't have as a child.

I think they can all be proud of Princess Alice. I'd love to have been a fly on a wall when she and the Queen Mother had tea togeter :-)

I love the name Alice anyway but for Harry or William it is extra wonderful since it pays tribute to Philip's family but I don't see it happening. I think William and Kate are done and I doubt Meghan will want an old fashioned name I expect names like Victoria or Tatiana or Alexandra. Maybe Eugenie or Beatrice will give us an Alice their parents may be silly but they gave the girls nice family names that are different but not odd.

I hope that some day we'll see more direct quotations from Philip about his family.  There were some letters in the massive biography on the queen mother, and he sounds really nice (oddly).  I bet his correspondence with his surviving sisters is interesting.

In the First World War, Princess Alice knitted woolen caps for Greek troops.
