The ones in the middle
The three siblings shown here in 1856, Princess Louise, Prince Arthur, and Prince Leopold, are three out of four of the youngest children of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. The youngest sibling, Princess Beatrice, would not be born until 1857.
Queen Victoria’s “Baby”
Many people believe Queen Victoria wasn’t particularly maternal. But she is believed to have had a favourite child – the youngest of her brood, Princess Beatrice. Queen Victoria referred to as Beatrice as “Baby” and showered her with more attention than her other siblings, resulting in enduring bitterness on the part of her older brother, the eventual King Edward VII.
The eldest children of Queen Elizabeth II
When this photo was taken in 1954, Princess Anne and Prince Charles were the only two children of Queen Elizabeth II. The next to be born, Prince Andrew, wouldn’t come along until 1960, and the fourth and last, Prince Edward, was born in 1964.
