PP/GC/ME/97 Letter from William Lamb, second Viscount Melbourne to Henry John Temple, third Viscount Palmerston, regarding negotiations with the King for finding a suitable husband for Princess Victoria, 27 April 1836
Date:
27/04/1836
Content:
Letter from William Lamb, second Viscount Melbourne, to Henry John Temple, third Viscount Palmerston: he thanks Palmerston for the papers which will prepare him for meeting the King. If the King tries to regulate the Princess’s marriage by authority, he will probably fail: “chance makes marriages, even royal ones, and perhaps better than policy.” Melbourne does not like the Duke of Coburg: “we have Coburg’s enough”. Neither does Melbourne like the Prince of Orange. He suggests the Prince of Cambridge. 27 Apr 1836
