    Notes 
    • Within months of marrying, Alice is said to have taken a wealthy lover. Her first daughter, Violet, was born in 1894, and the father was rumoured to be Ernest William Beckett, the future Lord Grimthorpe.

      Early in 1898 she met Edward Albert, Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII), then aged 56. She was 29, and within a matter of weeks Alice was his official mistress. She appears to have been adept at keeping everyone happy, and she was very discreet. Through it all she managed to preserve her own reputation and her marriage to Colonel Hon. George Keppel. It is rumoured that Alice's second daughter, Sonia, was the daughter of King Edward VII although she was said to have a strong resemblance to George Keppel.
