An Obscure Young mini who may yet be King of England. [Newspaper Article] — The Telegraph and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 19 February 1880

An Oltscurc Young Man wlio may yet be King of England. (From the Boston Advertiser, j The English pooplo have but just awakened to the fact that the elder of the two' sons of the Prince of Wales is probable heir to the throne, and that ho is, as such, an interesting person. At the same time they remember, with a mixture of amusement and amaze ment, that they know almost nothing about him. In fact, they are rathor puzzled when it is necessary to speak of him, to know how he is to be called. He is, in full, Prince Albert Victor Christian Edward. He used to bo styled Prince Albert Victor of Wales. Popularly he has been known as Prince Victor. When he was studying on board the Britannia he was called Prince Edward. Out of abundance of titles it is not easy to make a choice, and the British public seems to bo much 'at sea,' meta phorically, as tho Prince now is literally, in attempting to discover anything interesting or gossipy about one who, if he lives long enough, will be tho ruler o...
