Re: Royal Order of Victoria and Albert for Princess Ingrid Alexandra
Okay, that makes sense. I googled and found that the order wasn't given to anyone after the death of Queen Victoria.
She did not give "the order" as a gift. She gave a bracelet with the insignia of an order.
Princess Astrid, Mrs. Ferner reportedly gave Princess Ingrid Alexandra, for her Confirmation, a bracelet that appears to be made with the insignia of the Royal Order of Victoria and Albert. Queen Maud received the First Class of the order when she made her confirmation in 1888.
Check out the link to see some photos of the bracelet. What a lovely gift to pass along.
I don't understand. Can Princess Astrid, Mrs Ferner, give a British Royal Order to someone?
