Prince Albert is one of the more popular independent brands of pipe tobacco in the United States; in the 1930s, it was the "second largest money-maker" for Reynolds. More recently, it has also become available in the form of pipe-tobacco cigars. (A 1960s experiment with filtered cigarettes was deemed a failure.) The blend is burley-based and remains one of America's top-selling pipe tobaccos.
The tobacco was personally named by R. J. Reynolds after Edward VII, who was known as Prince Albert before being crowned King. The portrait of Prince Albert was based on one acquired by Reynolds at a tea party with Mark Twain.
