Has anyone read the book that came out recently by Julia Baird on Queen Victoria? I have read excellent reviews on it, but I am always more interested in what people on these forums think. I read one article that said there were people connected to the Royal family that didn't want it published because of some of the things it reveals. I wish I could remember where I read that and I would link it.

I don't know where to put this question, but since Lady Geraldine Somerset is mentioned in a book I read about Queen Victoria I will put it here. I have read quite a few books in the past year in the British Royal Family and in many of these books, Lady Geraldine Somerset's diary is mentioned. Has her diary been published? I think it would be fascinating to read.

The Lord Mayor of London asked Queen Victoria if she would come to open the Blackfriars Bridge when it was completed. Victoria regreted that it was quite out of the question for her to do anything of the kind in the heat of the summer. In the event when November came, she opened the bridge on November 6, 1869.

Does anyone know anything about the book, The Last Kaiser : The Life of Wilhelm II
by Giles MacDonogh? Its get good reviews on Thriftbooks.com. I am asking here because he was the son-in-law of Queen Victoria and this board is more active than other royal family boards.

Did you check his own thread? Maybe there's something in there?

or the "Royal Library" subforum on this site

Wow, those are gorgeous, not sure how easy it is to skate on them though (but they probably skated very different then compared to now... )

Excerpts from correspondence to and from the (still) young Queen Victoria, as well as a few letters from some other noted personalities of the early Victorian age to each other. Very informative reading !

In March 1887 Queen Victoria went to lay the first stone of the Medical Hall in London University.

When Colonel Secrertary Joseph Chamberlain suggested restricting the Diamond Jubilee's foreign guest list to the heads and representatives of the countries of the British Empire, Queen Victoria agreed to the ideas.

I just found this 9 volume set of letters of Queen Victoria. Oh my goodness!!! I would love to have them, but I cannot pay $500. I looked for each book from the set and they are more than I like to pay for books. Does anyone know if each book can be found for less than $10? I am sure I am dreaming that I could get one of them that cheaply.

I did a quick search over at abebooks.com and there are multiple books referring to the letters of Queen Victoria and they're really relatively cheap. Check this link out and see if the ones you're looking for are listed.

Good luck!
