nothing apparent in the Queen's behaviour to suggest that she was not a worthy daughter of the House of Brunswick. If her private life was not for a moment to be compared with that of George IV, there were moments when it seemed that she might have or develop something like what the Times described as "the meddlesome obstructiveness" of her grandfather, George III. It was whispered that she was often insane. As for the Prince of Wales, what was known of his life and pleasures suggested that he was developing much as had earlier princes of his line, and that another George IV might succeed Victoria. And if, said Bradlaugh, "it should in this country have at last to come to a question of a Republic or another George IV, then I can see only one reply, and I can hear scores of thousands of my fellow-countrymen training themselves to make it," adding that Parliament "has the undoubted right to withhold the Crown from Albert Edward, Prince of Wales." Moreover, there was keen disapproval of the foreign alliances of the Queen's family. As she subsequently warned the Prince of Wales, when she thought his anxiety to uphold the dignity of the family was taking too exclusive a form, "You may not be aware, as I am, with what dislike the marriages of Princesses of the Royal Family with small German Princes (German beggars, as they most insultingly were called) were looked on ... in these days, when you ask Parliament to give money to all the Princesses to be spent abroad ... we could not maintain this exclusive principle."(1)
