That is a Great Photo! Probably the best I have seen of Queen Victoria. When I ever Ii see Videos or photos of her it almost Brings her back to life in a life. She is the first British monarch to be Photograph or be Filmed and seen on video which is pretty cool.

Before her all the monarchs were portraits or paintings.

Hahahaha!!! I just finished reading a book about Queen Victoria's life, and she seemed to have smiled much while her consort Albert was alive and then ceased when he died. Very sad. What was interesting that I learned was that she become somewhat of a "mother figure" to her deceased daughter Alice's children, which I found very touching. She really took them to heart emotionally following Alice's death at such a young age. Gave me a new insight into a most complicated monarch.

Definitely Albert Victor

When Queen Victoria's daughter-in-law, the Princess of Wales, became the mother of a first son. did Victoria definitely declare that the boy's name had to be Albert Victor?

According to Wikipedia, he was named Albert Victor because it was amongst Queen Victoria's wishes. (Although he was nicknamed "Eddy".)

Quote:
A love letter highlighting the heartfelt passion between Queen Victoria and Prince Albert is to go on display for the first time.
In the document, written shortly before their marriage, the prince describes how the 20-year-old queen had stirred passions which burned so brightly they filled his “whole soul”.
The letter, which will be seen at an exhibition in Windsor Castle in the new year, is one of a series of love letters Albert wrote during their engagement, which are filled with poetic expressions of desire for his “deeply loved” fiancée.
Dearest deeply loved Victoria ... your image fills my whole soul - Telegraph

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?
