Queen Victoria’s Wedding

A day late but I thought I would post this tidbit anyway.. Don’t want to wait another year.. On February 10, 1840 Queen Victoria married the love of her life, Prince Albert at St. James Palace. They went on to have nine children and were devoted to each other until Albert’s tragic death in 1861. Queen Victoria went into mourning until her death 40 years later in 1901.

  1. Lovely photos. I haven’t taken the time to learn much about Queen Victoria but I have often been impressed by small details about her like the fact that she mourned her husband until her death. Sad, but committed.

    1. I know a little and have been impressed by her loyalty to her husband and courage to lead a country. Popular stories are nice but the more i delve into her life the more you really appreciate the person.
