If I am not mistaken, the queens regnant of England and Scotland succeeded to the throne when the dynasty was extinct in male line or the male line heirs were excluded from the succession, but Charlotte and Victoria had uncles.

Charlotte and Victoria were children of older brothers so there has to be no children left before it goes to the next brother. It like when George VI, the throne went to his eldest child (Elizabeth) not his next brother (Duke of Gloucester).

There was no real issue with Victoria being the heiress presumptive. William certainly saw her in that role and wanted her to be more at court as a result but her mother didn't want her to associate with her Hannover relatives all that much.

The consequence in some ways was that the Duke of Cumberland, not a nice man by any stretch of the imagination, could promote certain ideas about her due to his own desires and jealousies but there was no real call for Victoria to be passed over - except by the Duke himself. In the wider society and parliament itself.

Thank you.

Queen Victoria must have had dozens of bloomers that were quietly disposed of after her death. There are regular sales of these huge garments over the years. People still pay good money for them.

Much as I love and am entertained by and very interested in all things royal, to aspire to owning bloomers owned or otherwise by Victoria or any other monarch is a bit a tad too far!

I'm sure she owned hundreds during her long life. I, for one am not interested!

I think if Q.Victoria had known her undergarments would be sold to the public after her death, she would have ordered to burn them all

I agree. This is something of Victoria's that should have been kept a Secret.

I'm actually amazed that once Victoria became Queen she didn't insist on living on one level of the palace. Stories I've heard is that she wasn't ever allowed to walk down or up a flight of stairs without an attendant.

Is that as Queen or as a child?

I would believe it as a child - her mother was ridiculously strict - but as Queen she was considerably more in charge of herself, and I can't see someone putting that kind of restriction on her (and her actually following it).

As Queen, she finally escaped her mother's clutches and began to really have a life of her own and I would imagine every time she went up and down the stairs she would remember what part they played in her growing up. We really don't know though how it all affected her and she may not have ever even given it a second thought once she had her life as she wanted it to be.
