Princess Beatrice Dress (1880) (Fash
  • Notes: Princess Beatrice (1857 - 1944) was the youngest daughter of Queen Victoria who married Prince Henry of Battenburg in 1885. It was originally thought that this tartan was possibly designed for that wedding or as a commemorative tartan for that occasion although it was not until circa 1930 that the sett first appeared in the lists of Ross and Johnston. However, research in 2003 showed that a woven sample of this tartan, just known as 'Beatrice Dress' was included in Clans Originaux published in Paris in 1880. The original hypothesis was therefore incorrect and the tartan had been in existance for at least 5 years before the wedding.
