Zustand: Very good
Dear Mr. Radcliffe: Princess Beatrice heard from Lady Milford Haven today and she says she is not averse to your scheme, but can give no definite answer while she is abroad, she would probably hope to interview you personally about it, before taking further steps in the matter. I believe she returns to England the middle of the month, so I daresay you will hear from her. Yrs sincerely, Elizabeth Batteel Carisbrooke Castle served as the home of Princess Beatrice from 1896–1944, where after her marriage to Prince Henry of Battenberg, she continued her duties as the Queen's unofficial secretary, and with the appointment of Governership of the Isle of Wight (vacated after Prince Henry’s death in 1896) Prince Louis of Battenberg, in 1883 married the granddaughter of Queen Victoria, Princess Victoria of Hesse and by Rhine, eldest daughter of Queen Victoria's second daughter Princess Alice by Louis IV. One of Prince Louis’s younger brother, was the Prince Henry of Battenberg referenced above, ( married The Princess Beatrice, the youngest daughter of Queen Victoria)The Lady Milford Haven referred to here would have likely been Princess Beatrice’s niece.The marquessate of Milford Haven was created in 1917 for Prince Louis of Battenberg, the former First Sea Lord, and a relation to the British Royal family, who amidst the anti-German sentiments of the First World War abandoned the use of his German surname and titles and adopted the surname Mountbatten, an Anglicized version of the surname Battenberg.
