Royal warnings…..

Edward VII, the Playboy Prince was often known as ‘Edward the caresser’. He had married Danish-born Princess Alexandra in 1863, so they were not a young Royal couple when Bert appeared in front of them in July 21, 1909. Matter of fact Bertie (the King) died the following year.

The number of women Bertie supposedly had an affair with varies from 55 into the thousands. Yes, thousands according to this account.

Edward VII’s most popular mistress was British society lady Alice Kepple. Keppel’s great-granddaughter is Camilla Parker Bowles. (Lucky she and Charles haven’t trouble the offspring score board !!) Like Charles today, Bertie was Prince of Wales and heir apparent to the British throne for almost 60 years, as old Queen Victoria refused to die. He ascended the throne in 1901.
