Playing The Game
I am currently watching the film The Young Victoria and I was blown away by this scene. Its terribly romantic, don't you think? Prince Albert wins points for telling Victoria to find a husband to play the game with her, not for her. He was quite the feminist in that sense I think. Most men of that time would have been horrified to see their wife as their equal, it just wasn't thought of. To see Albert say this to Victoria, is quite wonderful, and romantic. Honestly, no wonder they are one of my favorite royal couples. They truly loved one another which is beautiful considering how many royal matches fall to pieces. So here's to Victoria and Albert, one of the greatest love stories!
