On July 22, 1896, Princess Maud Charlotte Mary Victoria, the youngest daughter of the Prince and Princess of Wales (the future King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra), married her cousin, Prince Carl of Denmark. The wedding took place at the private chapel at Buckingham Palace. The bride’s grandmother, Queen Victoria, attended the wedding. In 1906, Carl was crowned King Haakon VII of Norway. Queen Maud and King Haakon were the parents of Olav, who ascended the Norwegian throne in 1957 as King Olav V. Throughout her life, Maud remained very much attached to her native England, dying there in 1938. Queen Maud is one of the protagonists found in my book, “Born to Rule,” published by St. Martin’s Press in 2005.
