Hello Kimberly,

Again some fantastic paintings and photographs of one of the most important Queens in British history.
I live in Kent so the current Duke and Duchess of Kent are always close to our thoughts.
thank you for sharing :-)

Hi Kevin,
I just wanted to acknowledge Queen Victoria during her birthday. For now, a good way to begin is with portraits and photography. I might do an article later on. She was a fascinating woman!
It is always so nice to see your name appear to say hello. Thanks for taking the time to visit.
