January 23, 1890
Prince Henry of Battenberg has been "absent from court for two months," according to the London Truth. It appears that the husband of Princess Beatrice has "decided upon a permanent rectification of boundaries between himself and his wife's family."
The Grand Duke of Hesse and By Rhine and the Princess of Battenberg have been "endeavoring to arrange the difficulties which have arisen," but not with much success.
The paper expects that "we will find Prince Henry passing the autumn months in Continental travel, while his wife is enjoying the seclusion of Balmoral."
Prince Henry apparently "threw down the gauntlet" when he went to Graz, to stay with his brother, Prince Alexander, who was "unceremoniously jilted by Princess Victoria of Prussia." Prince Alexander has been "regarded at the English court, as a wretch compared with whom Judas Iscariot was a worthy man."
