Next, British King Edward VII, Queen Alexandra and daughter, Princess Victoria, are seen posing on the Trinacria's deck, with Italian King Victor Emmanuel III, who is engaged in conversation with the British monarch. Princess Victoria is the center of attention of a group of Italian naval officers. King Edward VII lights a cigarette, throws his match overboard, and smokes while the group continues posing for pictures. He shakes hands with an elder Italian statesman. The two kings converse and Victor Emmanuel III speaks to one of his officials, as Edward VII continues to meet members of the Italian party. (Reportedly, lunch was served in the saloon of the Trinacria, after which King Edward,Queen Alexandra and Princess Victoria returned to the British Royal Yacht, HMY Victoria and Albert III, and sailed to Naples.)
