Today marks the Anniversary of the Birth of Princess Victoria of the United Kingdom, who was born on this day in 1868. The second daughter and fourth child of the then Prince of Wales and Princess Alexandra of Denmark, she was born during the reign of her namesake grandmother, Queen Victoria, and spent her childhood between Marlborough House in London and Sandringham in Norfolk. Although she had a number of suitors, Princess Victoria never married and had no children. Actively discouraged by her mother from marrying, she lived with Queen Alexandra until her death in 1925, when she set up her own home at Coppins in Buckinghamshire, which she left to her nephew, the Duke of Kent. Princess Victoria took a particular interest in the village life, becoming honorary president of the Iver Horticultural Society, and was close to her brother, King George V, who died a few weeks after her own death in 1935, at the age of 67.
