Surrounding the prince was a fashionable clique known as the “Marlborough House set”, named after the prince’s home overlooking The Mall, London. The set was a mixture of old titled families and “plutocratic and parvenu” families with fortunes from new industry,[19] and Edward carried out an active policy to spread the social circle of the royal family to include new industrialists such as the shipping magnate Arthur Wilson.[20]
