30/30 - however one of the questions doesn't have a correct answer anyway - the last one. Edward VII's reign was only 9 years and that wasn't an option so I went with 10 which they gave as correct.

Given that the Duchess and Victoria were estranged for most of her married life the real question is how much contact she even had with her British grandchildren?

She visited very few places compared to Queen Elizabeth - even in Europe. She expected that foreign monarchs would come to her.

There are a number of photos of the royal family taken over the years that have never been published because they do believe that they have the right to keep those photos to themselves.

She was advised in 1857 to have no more children for health reasons so I don't think that 7+ years later - in her mid-40s she would have risked it.

There are also reports of how she loved him - but feared that he wasn't up to the job of being King. In other words she loved him as her son but as her heir she had her doubts.

My understanding is that she would have abdicated immediately and been regent for 18 years rather than actually be the Queen for 18 years and then abdicate.

The matter was actually dealt with in the Regency Act of 1830 - any child of Adelaide's and William's born after Victoria became Queen would succeed Victoria.

The offer was made about the time of her 18th birthday and as you say she was shortly to become Queen.
She turned it down, or more her mother and Conroy convinced her to turn it down.
