That clip to me looks like Queen Victoria and Prince Albert are attending a fancy dress party. The Crowns and dress are medieval in appearance.

Prince Albert would have been entitled to a Princely crown or Coronet and the only time those are usually worn is at a Coronation.

If only Frederick III, Alexander III. Edward VII had been alive in 1914!

Edward VII is the one who devised the Entente Cordiale, which was
activated in 1914.

After the German army entered Paris in 1940, the Kaiser wrote in a
letter to his daughter Viktoria Luise, the Duchess of Brunswick:
"Thus is the pernicious Entente Cordiale of Uncle Edward VII
brought to nought." [Alan Palmer, "The Kaiser: Warlord of the
Second Reich," p. 226]

Albert would have made a great German Kaiser.
He of course had descendants on both sides in World War I
(including the reigning Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha as well as
the Kaiser).

Dialing back the divergence point a bit...
what if Victoria had not been born and the UK and Hannover
had stayed together as of 1866?...would the Austro-Prussian
war have been averted,or augmented?

The World Trade Center towers MUST rise again,
at least as tall as before...or terror has triumphed.
