Wilhelm certainly wanted war and was saber-rattling for some time, even while Bertie was alive. A good look at this is in Jane Ridley's excellent authoritative biography of Edward VII. He would have done anything he could and he tried, but he knew it was a losing battle because Willy was lusting after war and due to everything that had gone on before - uniting into Germany by blood and iron - made it happen...

King Edward VII supported reform of the army following the Boer War. He supported Admiral Fischer's expansion of the Royal Navy including the new Dreadnought battleships.

Albert Edward and Alexandra, as Prince and Princess of Wales, went to stay at Sandringham together for the first time after their return from the honeymoon, on March 28, 1864. They were both completely happy there, as Benjamin Disraeli discovered when invited to dinner at Windsor the next month of April.
