In a few short paragraphs, this writer (Ard Choille), nicely sums up the chumminess that made up the royal families of old Europe and the vital role Queen Victoria played in the creation and maintenance of that bond:

"Until the outbreak of the war the royal families of the various nations made up a wonderful club, the like of which had never been known before. They married each other, and gave each other in marriage; they visited together, took tea, hunted, shot and sailed yachts together. Judging from the society papers most of Europe existed for their convenience, and even the variety of military uniforms was kept up in order that royalty, while at home or abroad, might have the opportunity to change its clothes as often as possible"
