The beautiful and talented Lilly Langtry was a popular British stage actress in the late 1800's through early 1900's and starred in multiple productions. However, her legacy is also remembered in part thanks to her reputation for building relationships with royalty - including the Prince of Wales, Albert Edward, and Prince Louis of Battenberg.
