  •  Prince Albert was a gem. (1+ / 0-)

    One of the last political acts he participated in was the furor over the "Trent Affair" during the US Civil War.  Albert personally redrafted the British Government's demands to the US, softening them to the point of providing a diplomatic out to both countries and thus avoiding war.  He was already feverish with the diphtheria which a week or so later killed him.

    His death was a great misfortune, because afterwards his wife the Queen fell into the clutches of the arch-imperialist Disraeli.
