I could see that if slavery still existed in the British Empire, Queen Victoria may have been dismayed by this fact but I doubt that it would have made her hesitate to get married. She was madly in love with Albert and that would have been uppermost in her mind.

From my collection,pic made by me.

Print of Queen Victoria during the time of her Diamond Jubilee.It used to adorn the walls of the British Consulate General here in Amsterdam untill someone " stored " it at the attack...and all forgot about it for decades...The roof leaked,and dear Victoria suffered from it but it was her rescue too as they came to repair the roof and found her there...The frame was so badly damaged it had to be replaced,but the glass is original.She was then taken to an antique shop where we met and fell in love....She adorns my hall now after she only for a very short while adorned a wall in my bedroom...Not a good idea...She seemed to be peaking all the time...Really...the influence she can still yield...

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.

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?

Queen Victoria was the first reigning monarch to use trains. In 1842 she made her first train journey.
For her June 22, 1897 Diamond Jubilee, Queen Victoria wrote in her diary:
"A never to be forgotten day.
No one ever, I believe, has ever met with such an ovation as was given me...
The crowds were quite indescribable..."

Prince Albert wrote.
"Dearest deeply loved Victoria"
Truly Albert loved Victoria.
Society garden breakfasts were initiated by Queen Victoria in 1868.

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.

I was just looking at this delightful find and how remarkable Prince Albert's handwriting looks from the article!
