The Prince of Wales with Companions

The Prince travelled across Europe for the first stage of his journey. In Munich, he visited Prince Louis of Hesse (1837 – 92; later Louis IV, Grand Duke of Hesse) who was engaged to marry Princess Alice, the sister of the Prince of Wales. The marriage took place on 1 July 1862. The Prince of Wales and Prince Louis were photographed with a number of the party who accompanied the Prince from Windsor. The Prince wrote about the occasion in his journal: ‘before luncheon we went through the ordeal of being photographed by Mr. Albert and the result was very successful’.
