|The Duke and Duchess of Teck and family ~ They had four children: Princess Mary, Prince Adolphus, Prince Francis, and Prince Alexander. The couple became an embarrassment for the British Royal Family. Known for leading a lavish lifestyle well beyond their means, they were forced into exile in 1883. To avoid their creditors, they fled abroad to Florence. After settling their debts in October of 1884, they were able to return to White Lodge, their residence in Richmond Park. It was then that Queen Victoria took their eldest daughter, Princess Mary of Teck, under her wing.|
