Personal History of Queen Victoria - Her Statue at Windsor

posted by TeaHouseTimes Admin, ADMINThursday, August 29th 2013 @ 7:38 PM

1887: Another ceremony of the day was unveiling by Her Majesty of a statue of herself at Windsor, in the presence of an enormous gathering of people.  The day was also celebrated in Paris by a Jubilee garden party at the British Embassy, and in the principal cities of Canada, Australia, New Zealand and India by appropriate ceremonies, in which thousands of enthusiastic people took part.  Addresses, telegrams and letters of congratulations from all parts of the world, including some from British citizens in the United States poured in, and the occasion was made one of general rejoicing all around the globe.

On June 23rd the Queen’s Jubilee was celebrated by religious ceremonies of thanksgiving at St. Paul’s Cathedral; on the 25th a State banquet was held at Windsor Castle, and on the 27th the Queen received there numerous delegations bearing congratulatory addresses.  On the 28th a Jubilee ball took place at the Mansion House, at which four Kings, several members of the British Royal Family and many foreign Princes were present.  On the 29th the Queen gave a grand garden party at Buckingham Palace, and on July 2nd she held a review of 28,000 volunteers at the same place.

On July 4th she laid the first stone of the Imperial Institute at South Kensington, and on the 6th, by royal command, a state ball was given at Buckingham Palace.  The Jubilee ceremonies proper were closed on July 9th, with a grand review of 60,000 troops – regulars, volunteers, and militia – at Aldershot; though it was not until November 4th that she made public proclamation of her thanks for the loyal demonstration of her subjects.
