The wedding between Princess Louise, sixth child of Queen Victoria, and the Marquis of Lorne, later Duke of Argyll, took place with much pomp on March 21, 1871, at St. George's Chapel, Windsor. Although not since 1515 when Henry VIII's sister married Charles Brandon, Duke of Suffolk, had a monarch approved of the marriage of a princess to a subject, Queen Victoria had readily consented to the union. Foreign alliances were ruled out for Princess Louise to avoid further divided loyalties in case of European political conflicts which caused such grief and stress to her sister Victoria, the Crown Princess of Prussia. On a more practical level, Queen Victoria seemed to have been quite upset at the inconvenience caused by foreign delegations: "Nothing is more unpopular here and more uncomfortable for me and everyone than the long residence of our married daughters from abroad in my house, with the quantities of foreigners they bring with them, and the foreign view they entertain on all subjects." Unfortunately, the Queen's desire to infuse new blood into the royal family was unfulfilled as Princess Louise remained childless.
