Oops,the ghost of the late Duchess didn't post this herself. It was me.
I totally forgot about her; but the mother of Great Britain's Queen Victoria, like her famous daughter, also had a long widowhood. Princess Viktoria of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld was widowed twice within six years. After the death in 1820 of her second husband (Prince Edward of the UK, the Duke of Kent), however, she never remarried. She died 41 years later, in 1861.
Her sister-in-law Augusta, Duchess of Cambridge (widow of Prince Adolphus, the 7th son of King George III) survived her husband by almost 39 years, dying on 6th April 1889. He died on 8th July 1850.
