He married the young Victoria in 1840. As her closest advisor, Albert exercised a restraining influence on the impulsive queen, especially in political matters. Among the political leaders of the period, Albert worked well with Sir Robert Peel but quarreled frequently with Viscount Palmerston. In the Trent Affair of 1861 the prince actually moderated the hostility of Palmerston's government toward the United States.
