Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip's family tree from Queen Victoria. HUGE mistake made in Philip's line...the photo of Princess Victoria is that of Princess Alice's (above) sister who became Empress of Germany. Princess Alice became Princess of Hesse and by Rhine; her daughter was Victoria of Hesse.
