AL-- BERT!!!

Somehow, I can't imagine Queen Victoria screaming "Albert" to call him in to dinner, from mucking around with his scientific friends. Which is a shame, because I feel Albert is a name that lends itself well to being screamed. This is detail from the Albert Memorial, recently restored.

I suspect Vicki would have screamed ALBERT a few times during the course of their reign. This is a wonderful memorial. I particularly like symbolic statues that appear at each corner. Perhaps these might feature in a future post?

Probably not. She was very much in love with him. Her mourning was quite genuine. Have you ever seen a portrait of John Brown, the ghillie who was supposed to be very close to her (though nobody knows the exact truth) later on? Absolute spit image of Albert.

That's quite an impressive, golden look he's got going on!
