On September 9, 1862, Prince Albert Edward proposed to Princess Alexandra at Laeken Royal Palace, the home of King Leopold I of Belgium, Edward's granduncle.

I bet the Queen was immensely relieved. Alexandra by contrast surely didn't know what she was getting herself into.

Not only was King Edward VII fond of his daughter-in-law, Princess Mary of Teck, he had a high opinion of her intelligence. He used to talk freely about political and foreign affairs which he would never have dreamed discussing with his daughters. Edward VII's trust in Princess Mary was so great that he gave her his express permission to see the King's Boxes along with the Prince of Wales.

When King Kalakaua of Hawaii was in England on an official visit, Prince Albert Edward escorted him to banquets, invited him to luncheon at Marlborough House and to a ball where Princess Alexandra opened the royal quadrille with him. Prince Albert Edward urged his friends to give dinners for King Kalakaua.

When King Edward VII made a trip abroad, he made sure that the luggage contained an ample supply of presents and decorations, particularly of the ribbons and insignia of the Victorian Order, to be bestowed upon attentive officials and obliging friends.
