Because the constitutional powers of Queen Victoria were different than they are currently. During her reign and the reign of her son powers were gradually curtailed. She hated that.

The Queen has a lot more power than one would think but chooses not to exercise it.

I just feel like Victoria did a lot in terms of legacy for example commissions all around the UK.

After Prince Albert died in 1861 at the age of 42, Queen Victoria was devastated. She slept with a plaster cast of his hand by her side.

For me Victoria went downright crazy for a long time after Albert's death.

I also read somewhere that she clung to Beatrice and refused to let her go, treating her more like a doll than a human being.

Queen Victoria made her first visit to Scotland in 1842. She was greatly excited by Sir Walter's Scott's novels and very anxious to make the acquaintance of Scotland.

Uncle Leopold (Leopold I of Belgium) assigned 3,000 pounds a year to be spent on his niece Victoria's education.

In late April 1890 Queen Victoria made a short private trip to Darmstadt on her return from holiday in France. She was greeted at the station by her son-in-law, Louis of Hesse, and then Princess Alix and two of Alix's older sisters, Victoria and Irene.

Beginning in 1832 at age 13, Victoria kept a journal. At the time of her demise in 1901, her entries ran 43,000 pages.

Unfortunately, after Victoria's death most of her diaries were altered/edited/destroyed by her daughter Beatrice.

And that action led Edward VII to decide to have his destroyed so they couldn't be treated in the same way as his mother's. He was furious when found out that Beatrice had done that to their mother's diaries.

Although, if I am recalling it correctly, did Edward 7 not destroy all of the correspondance between Victoria and John Brown as well as V and Abdul Karim?
