He is seen by many historians as the figure behind some of the greatest national projects of his time, and a loving husband who supported Queen Victoria throughout her reign. But Prince Albert gets too much positive press, historian Lucy Worsley has said.
He was dead by end 1861. She had another 40 years of reign to go.
And this is even more stupid:
Worsley told a packed audience of 1,700 people at Hay festival that Albert lacked emotional intelligence and manipulated Victoria for his own ends – namely becoming “king in all but name”.
If you’ve no emotional intelligence then you can’t manipulate people, can you?
