Throughout the early months of 1889, Lord Salisbury's Government and Queen Victoria were agonizing over the German Emperor's expressed wish to make a State Visit to Britain. Wilhelm II wanted to come to the Isle of Wight in Cowes Week. He intended to arrive accompanied by a good number of German naval vessels. Lord Salisbury wondered if the visit could not be classified as "private".

Do you think that it was fair that Victoria's mother, the Duchess of Kent denied King William IV of England the opportunity to see his niece Victoria?

Queen Victoria had grown up with the tradition of decorating a tree at Christmas time. The custom had been introduced to the English court by her Hanoverian ancestors. It was continued by her mother Princess Victoria, Duchess of Kent.

In 1894 before her arrival to the wedding of Ernest Louis of Hesse and Princess Victoria Melita, Queen Victoria spent time in Italy. She saw Michelangelo's statue of David. She went to the Villa Medici.

Queen Victoria was so taken with Alexander Graham Bell's invention of the telephone she became the first European monarch to own one.
