"Aunt Coffee-mill", but what has that to do with deafness? Maybe she talked very loudly to make up for it.  :-/


I think they refferred to the huge (silver) horn she used to hear better......I have a pic of her, with that horn, will post it in a minute...

Though she's holding something (I'm doubting...) could be a fan too........well anyway, I looked it up (have a sort of Guiness Book of records concerning royals...there it was written), the nickname is referring to the horn....

anyway, here's the pic!

Marie Caroline  was definitely not a beauty...downcast appearance.

I agree!!  This is so different from the Winterhalter portraits of her!  She has a really long nose and wide mouth!

When the Citizen King fled to live in England after he abdicated, did he socialize with other royals or was he ostracized and separate and apart from the royal scene? I was wondering because if you're a royal then wouldn't the royals of that country visit you and keep up some kind of friendlyness. Royals make state visits, why not make one if its in your own backyard? That being Surrey.

I'm most definitely no expert on this, but as far as I know QV and family were quite good to Louis-Philippe and his family, in terms of being friendly to them.

I'm sure someone else knows more.  ???
