In January 1867, he commissioned the H.M.S Galatea, and undertook an extensive world tour including South America, the Cape, and Australia. He married the Grand Duchess Marie of Russia on 23 January 1874, and they had four daughters and one son. He continued a distinguished naval career, and died in Germany in July 1900.
