A bit of history...
Princess Alexandra became Princess of Wales in 1863 when she married Prince Edward, later to become King Edward VII. The local connection was made when the Royal Yacht Victoria and Albert moored off Margate – an event that caused great excitement in the town. When the pub was built a short time later, it was decided to name it after the Princess along with new almshouses nearby called the Alexandra Homes.
