Queen Victoria and the Prince of Wales.

I believe it is a historical tradition that all reguing monarchs are at Isssue with their heirs apparent, and if Queen Victoria and her first born be not greatly belied by those who pretend to know, they are no exception to the rule.
Not to put too fine a point upon it. It is said that they quarrel like cat and dog. Her Majesty likes to have her own way, as was very well known in Prince Albert's time, and the Prince

When the Prince
got married and set up for himself at Marlboro' House, his mother desired him to put his servants into mourning for his dead father; this the young man flatly refused to do, and left Windsor
in a huff, not returning for some time.--London Correspondence of the New York Tribune.
