Her father was Prince Henry of Battenberg, the fourth child and third son of Prince Alexander of Hesse and by Rhine by his morganatic wife Countess Julia von Haucke, and her mother was Princess Beatrice, the fifth daughter of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha. Her mother, as the youngest child of the lonely queen, was kept "at home" with the court, which happened to be at Balmoral when she went into labour. Victoria Eugenie was the last grandchild of a monarch to be born in Scotland until Prince Margaret Princess was born at Glamis Castle in Angus in 1930. approx dimensions 27 x 39cm (Please note overall condition has marks and some of the lace edging is loose)
