N May 24th, 1819,
a little Princess was
born at Kensington Palace.
e / ) VHer father, the Duke of
SKent, was the fourth son of

SIi mother Princess Victoria Mary
Louisa of Saxe-Coburg Saalfield.
She was christened Alexandrina
Victoria, her first name being given
to her by her Godfather, the Emperor of Russia, but
the little girl's own wish, in later years, was
to be called Victoria. Her father
was very much loved in England,
but did not live to 'see the-little
daughter, of whom he was so proud,

brought up almost entirely by her
good mother, and she spent a
very happy childhood As soon as
she was old enough her mother -.

made the Baroness Lehzen DucHE8so K\E
governess to the little girl, ,
who was also taught by the
Rev. George Davys, afterwards
Bishop of Peterborough. The Prin-
cess grew up to be a very pretty i
girl, very truthful, kind to her pets,
and fond of her garden. When she
was about eleven years old she
was taken to see her uncle, King
George IV., at Windsor; and the next year she
went to Court with her aunt, Queen Adelaide, the
wife of King William IV., another uncle, who had
become King of England owing to his brother's death.
The little Princess had not been told until she
was twelve' years old that she might one day be the

Archbishop of Canterbury came to tell her that she
was now The Queen. She rose hurriedly, and came
into the room where they waited to break the news
to her. The next day she was proclaimed Queen of
Great Britain and Ireland, and in 1838, on the 28th
June, she was crowned in .Westminster Abbey, amid
a scene of dazzling splen-
dour, and the rejoicings
of all her loyal
people.

much loved by the nation, and was a great help to the
Queen, doing a great deal of good. In 1851 he planned
and started the Great Exhibition in Hyde Park. In
the following years the Crimean War and the Indian
Mutiny broke out, and our good Queen was very anxious
for her gallant soldiers and sailors. It was a great
pleasure to her to give the Victoria Cross to brave
men who did noble deeds. In 1860 the Queen lost her
mother, and in 1861 her much-loved husband died at
Windsor. It was a time of great sorrow for her. After
this sad event Her Majesty lived quietly
at her various homes, always doing /
good, and watching over the
welfare of her people. ,

A few years later she was proclaimed Empress of India,
and in 1887 our beloved Queen celebrated the Jubilee
of her reign by a grand Thanksgiving Service at West-
minster Abbey. She also held a review of the fleet at
Spithead, and showed
great interest in the brave BALMORAL
sailors of her Navy, of
which she has always/ a
been so proud.

In the hearts of all her people there can be but one
wish-that the closing years of her life may bring her
increased happiness and prosperity, and that the little
ones of this realm may be taught to remember the
fulness of the love expressed in those words most
dear to Englishmen
GOD SAVE THE QUEEN.
