Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!

Meet Britain’s little known "Queen of Hearts" after whom Alexandra Palace was named

I recently watched a fascinating documentary about Queen Alexandra, Edward VII's wife. Beyond knowing the basics, I previously knew almost nothing about her. The. Danish royal’s story makes an interesting comparison with Diana's. 

Living so near to Ally-Pally, we all ought to know just a little more about this interesting woman. 

This Channel 5 programme examines th today under-appreciated Queen Alexandra, who was the longest-serving Princess of Wales and reigned as Queen Consort for nine years until her husband’s passing in 1910.

Her popularity often eclipsed that of the king and in this film, royal experts lift the lid on how many present-day duties were inspired by Alexandra's work of more than a century ago.

Watch on My 5.
