Lillie Langtry was as a 19th century actress whose endorsement on beauty products such as Pear’s soap guaranteed surefire sales. A muse to artists such as John Everett Millais, she became the lover of millionaires and royalty, including the very married Prince of Wales, i.e. the future Edward VII. “Bertie” was so besotted with Lillie that he even introduced her to his mother, Queen Victoria, but he ended the affair after Lillie put ice down his back at a party and refused to apologize.
