"I feel that I must see you again soon..."
Love letters from a beautiful actress whose affair with King Edward VII scandalised Victorian Britain have emerged.
Lillie Langtry, a married but promiscuous socialite, had a string of illicit relationships with numerous men, most notably the then Prince of Wales.
The eight letters that are coming up for sale were written by her in 1890 - 10 years after her fling with the Queen's great-grandfather.
Aged 37 at the time, the West End actress was smitten with aristocrat John Talbot Clifton and begged him to take her to America with her.
Another note from her relating to her ex-husband Edward Langtry spells out the drink problem he suffered largely due to her affair with the Prince of Wales.
