In Her usual thorough and efficient way, Queen Elizabeth II, has given her subjects all the information about Royal Diamond Jubilees that anyone could desire. She has taken Queen Victoria’s own journals and posted them on the internet. I don’t know how long they will be up, so don’t miss it. As the present Queen explains:
“These diaries cover the period from Queen Victoria’s childhood days to her Accession to the Throne, marriage to Prince Albert, and later, her Golden and Diamond Jubilees.
Thirteen volumes in Victoria’s own hand survive, and the majority of the remaining volumes were transcribed after Queen Victoria’s death by her youngest daughter, Princess Beatrice, on her mother’s instructions.”
