Queen Victoria: The Longest Reigning British Monarch


Born today was Queen Victoria.
Whose marriage was at first euphoria.
But when the  Prince, her Albert, died,
She absolutely died  inside.*

*And became the byword for conventional propriety and a prudish, strait-laced morality.

  • The official History of the Monarchy says 1837-1901, or ~64 years. If you ask Prince Charles and his consort Secretariat Parker Bowles, it looks like mum is going to beat that.

  • In reply to jack:

    I wish her the best.
