Historical Photo of Queen Victoria

Today marks 113 Years since the Death of Her Late Majesty Queen Victoria. A while back I came across a very Historical Photo of Queen Victoria which I wanted to share here. This Photo is very rare and is rarely seen, The photo is of Queen Victoria after her Death and just before her Funeral. She is laid out on the floor in her weddng dress with a picture of Prince Albert above. The Photo is very historical and the Queen look very peaceful. I wanted to share because of it historical context.

The Photo is in the next post. There are Some members who may prefer not to view the image in the following post...

Wow. Thanks for sharing this. It does look like she is sleeping and at peace. These are amazing pictures. What is the second picture though? Is that a casket?

Yes the second one is her casket. You can see the small crown on top of it

Thanks for sharing!

I don't think the Queen is "in" her wedding dress. It looks like it was laid over her.

Regardless, and ITA w/you as I don't think her Wedding Dress would have fit her at that point, it's still respecting her wishes, as didn't she want to be buried wearing it? Not sure that happened, as I could swear it was part of that Historic Royal Wedding Gowns exhibit at KP a few years ago.

Still...Those are incredible pictures. Thanks for sharing them w/us.

Wikipedia reports that Victoria was buried with her wedding veil, but both the lace and the dress were saved. The dress appeared on display at KP in 2012, but the lace was declared to be too fragile to take out of storage.
