Queen Victoria bought a grand piano in London in 1854 as a gift for Prince Albert.

When Queen Victoria became Empress of India, was it suggested that Prince Albert Edward receive  a title such as Prince Imperial of India?

That’s an excellent question and I never thought about it.  Victoria’s son Edward VII was the Emperor of India but I don’t - think - that there was a specific title for an heir like Hereditary Prince or Crown Prince.  Interesting, hmmmm…..

In 1871 Queen Victoria opened the Royal Albert Hall on March 29. She limited herself to just one sentence.

Prince Albert was given full access to Cabinet and other State papers. From 1841 onwards he attended audiences which Queen Victoria held with her ministers.

I wonder how people felt about Albert's access to that information (if they knew about it), given that he had zero constitutional role or authority or right or need to see those papers.

There was a lot of controversy about it at first, starting with the Queen herself who jealously guarded the perqs of her office. But I think for the most part there was an eventual acceptance that Albert kept her on a steadier course, and therefore the affairs of the nation were less erratic as well.

Thanks, bumber!  We're getting into her in my curriculum shortly so this will be an interesting vignette to add, and your comment about him keeping her on a steadier course and thus the nation on a steadier course will be a fantastic insight.  Thanks!   Star

On November 1, 1858 Queen Victoria gave a proclamation which declared that India was a British dominion. This declaration was ratified by the Government of India Act in Parliament.

Queen Victoria sent a bust of her husband Prince Albert to her great-grandson Prince Albert Frederick of York as a christening present.
