^^I agree. I read the most recent biography on Victoria and the symptoms detailed in it point to Krohn's Disease.

There was a vacancy for a lady-in-waiting on Queen Victoria's staff. Victoria found it comforting to surround herself with widows. One eligible lady was Lady Eliza Jane Waterpark. Lady Waterpark's husband, a former lord-in-waiting to Prince Albert, was deceased. Lady Waterpark was hired to be a lady-in-waiting.

The Lord Mayor of London asked Queen Victoria if she would come to open the Blackfriars Bridge when it was completed. Victoria regreted that it was quite out of the question for her to do anything of the kind in the heat of the summer. In the event when November came, she opened the bridge on November 6, 1869.

When Victoria was a little girl, her food was tasted before every meal. She was not allowed to walk down stairs without holding somebody's hand.

Not surprising. Sad times back then, and even now there are lots of reasons to protect the members of the RF.

Queen Victoria cherished her German ancestry. In 1840 the diarist Charles Greville expressed that the Queen seemed to consider 'her German uncles as her only kith and kin'.
