Who’s A Naughty Boy Then ?

King Edward VII StatueKing Edward VII, also known as “Tum Tum”, was Queen Victoria’s son. He, like Prince Charles, was kept waiting to become king, by a very healthy mother. In fact poor old Tum Tum holds the record for the longest heir apparent. When Edward finally took the throne in 1902 he soon became a popular King, despite his indiscretions with numerous women. One of the king’s last mistress’s was believed to have been socialite Alice Keppel, none other than Camilla Parker Bowles great grandmother (apples don’t fall far…). Rumor has it Camilla’s grandmother, Sonia Keppel, was the illegitimate daughter of Edward. Now wont that will give you something to think about next time you see a Edward VII statue?
