Baby Bee

Just wanted to share with you one of my new postcards - a lovely image of Princess Beatrice of Edinburgh, Princess of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, a granddaughter of Queen Victoria, who married Prince Don Alfonso of Orleans-Borbon, Infant of Spain, who was the first cousin of King Alfonso XIII, who happened to be married to Bee's first cousin, Victoria Eugenia of Battenberg. This postcard - published by Gimm, a local Gotha firm - was probably released at about the time of the princess' engagement.
Baby Bee is one of my favorite descendants of Queen Victoria.
