Could it be a possibility that George’s daughter Victoria could marry Louis-Phillips’s grandson Philippe?
"Incidentally..." usually means someone's about to be told off/bribed or conned into thinking what they previously thought was good and worked hard to secure is actually now bad and should be dropped like a stone. I suspect it was just as true in Whitehall in the 1830s/40s as it was in the 1970s/80s....and probably still is.Particularly the "Incidentally..." followed by the crux of the arguement.
Edit: Yes (Prime) Minister also has plenty of cases of minister on minister action like this, for instance you have the minister for health in "The Smoke Screen" being given the job in treasurary.
Haha, I'm glad you think so! I always like to think of these characters as ordinary people in extraordinary situations. They very often have little to complain about so the petty things become insanely important. Madame Adélaïde presented the perfect opportunity to showcase this - though I doubt fans of Queen Louise enjoyed her appearance here.The pettiness everyone presents here is so realistic.
I can tell you that Victoria will receive MANY offers of marriage. Lucky Toria!Could it be a possibility that George’s daughter Victoria could marry Louis-Phillips’s grandson Philippe?
Ah! My apologies, I thought you meant the Count of Flanders as he's mentioned in the chapter. The Comte de Paris would really have to be a love match I think as by the time Victoria is of marriageable age, Philippe doesn't have all that much to offer her.I meant the son of the Prince Royal
The true Clash of the Titans!Now I want to see what kind of conversation Mary and Adélaïde would be like. Guessing it would be a lot of snark.
Does this mean that the French Revolution of 1848 still happens?Ah! My apologies, I thought you meant the Count of Flanders as he's mentioned in the chapter.

Thank you so much!Not to worry. This update was a lovely treat this morning
As things stand at the moment yes but though I have the main narrative fixed for TTL from 1815 to the present day, I tend to approach the writing of it in chunks of five years at a time so this could easily change if a POD grabs me early enough to be able to weave it in ahead of OTL events.Does this mean that the French Revolution of 1848 still happens?
Knock-on! (not butterfly) Utterly and absolutely predictable consequence, not random variation. Butterflies because George of Cumberland was not King of Hanover in TTL.

BTW, one would think that in the course of a tour through France, Netherlands, and northern Germany, George would pay a ceremonial visit to his subjects in Hanover. They're used to not seeing the King who stays in Britain. But that he should pass right by would seem rather a snub.
Very much this but it will not go unnoticed by the people of Hanover that their King passed them by on this trip.But it wasn't planned as a tour, the French visit was the full intent, until Victoria learned of the visit and their trip to see her was supposed to be anonymous under their aliases Mr and Mrs King and then they got dragged to Rumpenheim because they'd been to see Victoria so they couldn't very well reject an invite there, and then Frederick died, so they got hauled off to Berlin for his funeral, it all rather snowballed and Parliament were already resistant to the fact George would have been out of Britain for two months, more with the funeral, so they wouldn't have sanctioned a visit to Hanover which, after all, has a Viceroy.
Yes but she won't have nearly as many as she had with Albert as the dynamic of her marriage is very different here.Will Victoria have more children than the one daughter she currently has?
Corrected, thank you for pointing this out for me.I think you mean Caroline - Auguste is her cousin.
