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...

I agree. Rather harsh assessment and false to boot! Victoria may not have been fond of infants and toddlers but I have never seen evidence that she hated her children. I think...

I think after her ninth child was born and the doctors advised Victoria against having any more, she was reported to have said, "Are we not to have any fun?" Her love for Albert was both physical...

My dear Currie,

I am confused. Are you looking for written confirmation about Queen Victoria's Jubilee medal? Such as in some publication? I thought Iluvbertie cleared up your questions. If you...

Poor woman. Albert's death was truly a blow to her and one from which she never fully recovered. Today, many grieving spouses are given medication to treat their depression. It is clear to me that...

Many parents are critical of their children but that does not mean they don't love them at the same time. Victoria pinned many hopes on Bertie and I am afraid he disappointed her, which she conveyed...

My dear XeniaCasaraghi,

You are correct--Victoria never hated Bertie. As for the Georges, I know that George III was upset with all of his sons because they were promiscuous and spendthrifts,...

My dear XeniaCasaraghi,

My apologies, it seems I have offended you.:flowers: I must have misunderstood your question. I think the Georges (I, II and III) disliked their elder sons in a way...

I think Victoria, and Albert, were disappointed in Bertie because he enjoyed gambling, wine, women, disliked his studies and suffered by comparison with his intellectual sister, Vicky. This...

I think Queen Victoria was a romantic and loved the company of handsome and virile men. I doubt very much she knew any man in the biblical sense after the death of Albert. But she did have friends...

She was the Queen, after all. But maybe she truly felt she was above the rest of society, which probably meant the nobility and upper classes. I don't think she was referring to the majority of her...

I think Albert had great influence over Victoria and he was an able diplomat, but she was a good monarch as well. Her prime ministers ran the government but Victoria advised them and was able to...

I've always believed that Victoria was not the prude many thought her to be, and that she loved the physical aspect of marriage. Again, it is a pity that Beatrice burned many of the Queen's...
