Osborne House, Queen Victoria's island home to be renamed
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-hampshire-12711777
Quote
Queen Victoria's former palace on the Isle of Wight is having an official name change to Royal Osborne.

The 342 acre estate at East Cowes, currently known as Osbourne House, was bought by Prince Albert and Queen Victoria in 1845.

It was the couple's main residence with their nine children.

An English Heritage spokesman said: "We hope that people will be delighted with the new name and will celebrate this royal association."

The name change will come into effect from 1 April.

Queen Victoria died at the palace in 1901 after reigning for nearly 64 years.

I think that is how HM would react if Philip dropped dead from illness.

I don't see QEII behaving as QV even if PP had died when he was forty. I don't get that she has the same kind of dependence on PP, I even think that they live quite separate lives.

No way; HM said ehrself that if not for Philip, she would not have been able to carry on and I don't see how she WOULD go on. I mean, Queen Victoria lived for her husband, but HM isn't as sturdy as Victoria was. She's more of a countrywoman motherly type and HM has to work a lot harder to assert her authority in public and private. With Queen Victoria there was never any dispute over who was in charge. HM and Philip might be somewhat independent, but I don't think that Philip would be half the man he is if he hadn't married HM and I don't think HM would have made it this far without Philip. Since her marriage she's been Queen and there is no way she could have done it alone and I think that when Philip goes, she will go too and vice versa. They really couldn't be without each other. They are only as strong as the other and how else could HM have done so well?

    HM is a most sensible woman, who is not known for being overly emotional.

        As older couples do, they come to accept one of them will predecease the other.

           Its a sad fact of long marriages.

             HM is made of steely determination and duty, after all Churchill was her mentor in the early days of her reign.

                   She would never do such a thing as has been suggested, its not in her to do so.

It's amazing to hear her voice! Even if it's just a few seconds.

I ended up watching an entire documentary on her, thanks to this video  easter-egg-basket

   The truth about how Prince Albert died has finally been solved - 150 years after his death.
Historians have discovered that Queen Victoria's beloved Albert died not from typhoid fever as Victorian doctors assumed but by Crohn's disease.
The inflammatory bowel condition was not known to medical science at the time of his death just before Christmas in 1841 but is treatable today.

   I have seen most of these, and dont see why they shouldnt be seen.

    Victoria had artistic talents.

      Her Highland Journals are full of them.

          Lovely sketches .. Thanks Alex
