Quick Reference


The fiftieth anniversary of Victoria's accession saw a well‐orchestrated outburst of loyalty. The Round Tower at Windsor was illuminated by electrical light, prisoners amnestied, medals struck, statues erected, the fleet reviewed at Spithead, and a thanksgiving service held at Westminster abbey with music by the late Prince Albert. ‘And all was the most perfect success,’ wrote Victoria afterwards.
