Very interesting as I often wondered who was her favourite child?

I think Queen Victoria's favourites changed over the years. Prince Albert's favourite was Vicky, later the Empress Friedrich while Victoria's was Alfred when he was a boy. Later he started exhibiting louche and womanising behaviour, and she disapproved. Arthur became the favourite among her sons as she decided he was very like his father. After the Prince Consort's death she clung to her youngest child Beatrice, and never wanted her to marry and leave her. Beatrice's husband Henry Battenburg had to settle for a life at Court with his mother in law.

I think Queen Victoria certainly found two of her children, Louise and Leopold, quite difficult to deal with and of course she disapproved of the lifestyle of Bertie Prince of Wales, though she was fond of him.
