Queen Victoria photographed with the Battenbergs.
Queen Victoria with the Battenbergs in 1889; Prince Henry of Battenberg holds his son Alexander ('Drino' - later Marquess of Carisbrooke), while Princess Beatrice holds their only daughter, Ena (Victoria Eugenie Julia Ena, later Queen of Spain). Queen Victoria insisted that her youngest daughter remain at home with her after her marriage and so the Battenberg children were very much 'the children of the house', always with their grandmother and allowed to play in her room while she worked.
