ok thanks

who know about the hobbys about Irene?

i know that ella loves Music and Art, like Ernie and Alix

victoria i think she love ARt and science

in many pics i saw that she has a book in her hand, i think  she has love to read.

I wouldn't know about any certain hobbies, that would be interesting to find out.

I've actually found Irene to be plain in looks, but I think in her earlier years she looked cute and sometimes very pretty, too, although she seemed to have grown dramatically thin in old age. She does seem to have been a bit of a "busy-body" at times, but I don't think she had bad intentions. She seemed enigmatic but also friendly, emotional and supportive.

Yeah i think too, tha only not nice think, was in the time where she fell in Love with Henry, and her QV didnt know about the match. But i can understand why Irene hasnt told it to her Grandmother, Cause she know that QV never wanted that they will marry, she would force Irene to marry a another man.

I don't know why Irene never told her grandmother; she only found out that there was a courtship when they had become engaged, which Queen Victoria really disliked as she would have liked to find out earlier. But, I don't think that Queen Victoria would have ever actually forced one of her granddaughters to marry a certain someone if they didn't want to.

But we know that QV has force Ernie and Victoria Melitta,to marry. But about her Granddaugthers she has never force them.

QV just didnt wanted that one of her Hesse-Granddaugthers will marry someone of Russia. But Alix and Ella has done that. QV Knew that something terrrible will happen in Russia.

QV was happy that Irene and Victoria hasnt married one of Russia.But with Henry she wasnt very happy...

Well...QV was miffed that Missy married into Romania and dumped poor Georgie. She made sure that Ernie got Ducky. Marie Coburg relented because her daughter was NOT marrying into England but to nearby Hesse. Irene 's engagement was low key, but Vicky wasn't asked in this instance. She opposed Ella on health grounds and end up with "the cow from Holstein" who was unkind to her at every turn. She was perhaps glad that Alice's daughter was to marry Henry, her troublesome son...

Yet...He was not a model son to Fritz & Vicky. Henry was not as screwed up as Willy, but did have issues with Vicky. However after the marriage, Vicky noted that Henry was nicer to her and credit Irene's influence... ;)

Well...I think he may be a flirt, but I don't think Henry strayed. Like his grandfather Wilhelm I, he was always ready to indulge a pretty face (his favourites were Alexandra of Wales and Elisabeth of Austria)... ;)

Not much been heard about that, but like Louis of Battenberg (another sailor prince) he may have his adventures overseas before marriage. After that I doubted that.

They knew of each other's existance since The Battenbergs were very close to the Russian Imperial Family...
