 Empress Friedrich | Prussia Hohenzollern | Imperial Royal Marriage

In 1858 a royal wedding took place that was designed to align the fortunes of Europe's two most important powers, Great Britain and Germany's chief principality, Prussia.
The bride was Victoria, or “Vicky, Princess Royal” the oldest child of England's longest serving queen, Queen Victoria, and her husband, Prince Albert. The groom was Frederick, or “Fritz,” the son of King William of Prussia.
As the couple left St. James Chapel in London (not Berlin), they were serenaded by Mendelssohn's “Wedding March,” the first time it ever was played at a wedding.

For her wedding, Vicky wore a grown of white silk moiré over a petticoat flounced in lace and wreathed in sprays of orange blossom and myrtle. Her train was trimmed with white satin ribbons and lace. Her lace veil was held in place by a matching wreath, and she wore a diamond necklace, earrings, and brooch.

The Queen, who had chosen lilac silk moiré with a velvet train, wore the crown diamonds and a royal diadem of diamonds and pearls. Queen Victoria wore the George IV diadem.
An "european thinking" - the marriage was primarily the brainchild of Prince Albert, who dreamed that Great Britain and an eventually united Germany, under Prussian leadership, together would guide Europe into a future of liberalism, progress and prosperity.

For Fritz, Vicky ordered an engagement ring set with emerald exactly like the one her mother had given her father. Vicky asked her fiancé to wear it in the same way, on his little finger.

 Empress Friedrich | Royal Jewelry German Prussia Hohenzollern

When Elisabeth, Queen of Prussia, widow of Friedrich Wilhelm IV, herself died, she left her “magnificent” jewels to Vicky instead of to the Prussian crown, as was traditional with queens of Prussia. Vicky’s mother-in-law, Augusta, never forgave Vicky.
Augusta, who always resented the fact that her predecessor Queen Elisabeth had left her jewels to Vicky, took her revenge by leaving nothing to her daughter-in-law or Vicky’s daughters.
“The Empress left a very large fortune,” Vicky wrote Victoria. “Part goes to William, part to Henry … the largest part to Louise of Baden, & some to Vicky of Sweden… . I think what went to William, who does not want it, might have been parted amongst my 4 daughters & Henry’s son! But I did not expect we should be remembered.”
