Happy Birthday, Princess Alice, Grand Duchess of Hesse! One of the most spiritual and fascinating daughters of Queen Victoria, Alice, like her daughters, was a deeply sensitive person who combined her joie de vivre with a sense of imminent tragedy; a great spiritual seeker whose experiences seemed to turn her back to the 'safe' beliefs of her childhood and then to yield altogether and escape, at such an early age, from this life. Maybe she thought too much...Maybe, like her father, she felt too deeply. Alice was a great soul and a beautiful human being!

Indeed she was! She was a lovely lady, but too unselfish for her own good.

I know someone whose neighbour is named after her!
