Smith, Elder and Co.of London. The same publishers, I believe, that published Charlotte Bronte's novels. Sir Arthur Helps was the editor for the later editions.

The lady in this photo with D.Luís and Dom Pedro of Portugal is the Queen Victoria?

Both Dom Pedro and Dom Luis were born in the late 1830's weren't they? If so, judging by the age of the boys, the photo must have been taken around 1850ish.

Victoria never visited Portugal but Albert was very fond of these cousins so they may have visited London at that time. It's hard to say whether it is Victoria or not, though I think not. Photographs were very formal things in those days and you'd think if it was Victoria she would have Albert in the picture too! Just my opinion, though.

Book written by Queen Victoria when she was 10 to be published | Daily Mail Online

Quote:
A children's story written by Queen Victoria when she was just 10 years old is to be published for the first time.

The short story was penned by the future monarch and tells the story of a 12-year-old girl, Alice Laselles, who was sent away to boarding school after her mother died and her father remarried.

Princess Victoria's story was written in her 'Composition' notebook as part of her studies with her governess, Baroness Louise Lehzen, and kept in the Royal Archives at Windsor Castle.

Difficult to tell. The boy leaning over the table is her son though.

I wonder whether the collector who bought them tried them on for size?

This was a truly well written article and, for me, really presented the impact of Prince Albert's death on Victoria. Although I knew the basics, I never realize just how close their relationship was and how important to the British monarchy Albert was.

Thanks much for posting this.
