Historical Review:

George Frederick Ernest Albert of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, second son of the Prince and Princess of Wales (later King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra) was born on 3 June 1865 at Malborough House and baptised on 7 July at Windsor Castle.

As a second son of the heir apparent Prince George has destined for a career in the Royal Navy and in 1877 he and his elder brother Prince Albert Victor became cadets. In January 1892 the Prince’s naval career was brought to an abrupt close by the sudden death of Prince Albert Victor, so putting him in the direct line of succession. He was created Duke of York on 24 May 1892, and one year later, on 3 May 1893, he became engaged to Princess Victoria Mary (May) of Teck, who had been Prince Albert Victor’s fiancee. The couple were married on 6 July 1893 at the Chapel Royal, St James’s Palace, and spent their honeymoon at York Cottage, Sandringham, which was to be their residence for the next thirty-three years.
