Hi, Anyes, and Happy Victoria Day to you!

I've read several biographies of Victoria and her son Edward VII, and never tire of the unusual details of their singular lives. You've certainly picked a most flattering image of Victoria! I've never seen this one before.

Hi Mark,
She might have been an impressive monarch for her country, but I understand that she was ghastly towards her children and quite dislikable in general. Yes, this idealized version of her is rarely seen, unlike the ones in her senior years, in full regalia.
Have a great weekend.
Anyes
