Princess Alice, the mother of recently deceased Prince Philip, is described as a princess who “refused to fit the royal mold.” Alice was born different, with congenital deafness. But starting as a toddler, she learned to speak and lip read German, English, French, and Greek. Once married to Prince Andrew of Greece and Denmark, she began doing charity work, to which she dedicated her life. She also spent a few years in an asylum, diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic, and was treated by Sigmund Freud himself.
