Queen Alexandra kept a cockatoo in her apartments at Marlborough House and her fondness for birds was noted by the contemporary author Arthur H. Bevan. He records that she had in her boudoir ‘several canaries, bullfinches and other songsters’. He also notes that Edward VII kept a green parrot in his room; it was moved to Sandringham, where it later died.
