Royal habits seemed hard to break...Yes many remember the cherry brandy incident.  :) Very tame by today's standart. Georgie Kent and Edward VIII (Duke of Windsor) both had drug problems but kicked the habit later on.

What drug problem did Edward VIII (Duke of Windsor) have?

I read that David had experience with dugs, but quickly dropped it. When his younger brother Georgie was hooked onto it. He was able to get help and offer his own experience on how to kick the habit. Even Queen Mary was glad that he excerted some positive influence on his younger brother this time.  :)

Where did you read this Eric? David was fiercely opposed to drug-taking and I have never come across so much as a hint of him ever trying them.

Does anyone know if Alice, Grand Duchess of Hesse was a smoker?  How about her husband, Louis?

I've seen a picture of Louis with a meerschaum, but I doubt that Alice smoked.  Not only does it seem not in keeping with her personality, but she died in 1878 and I don't think smoking had become "fashionable" for royal/society women by then.  I know her daughter Victoria took up smoking as a teenager, but she was influenced by her bad cousin Willy, not girls in her peer group.  Wilhelm II was SO wrong on SO many levels.

Interestingly i haven't ever seen any of minnie
as far as Camilla smoking i'm pretty sure she gave up when she married charles
also as far as margaret goes although there were reports that she smoked 60 a day i read somewhere that actually it was more like 70 in her height. although the queen mum didn't smoke she did drink excessivly the amount of units per week for women is recommended at 14 and she drank 70...obviously preserved her as she lived to 101 ;)

also Philip did smoke but gave up when he married the Queen..thank God, so on the topic of kissing a smoker when you're a non smoker, i suppose it was the same for the queen as was mentioned for charles and camilla.
