On This Day



On This Day… A Royal Wedding!

Written by: George Chittenden : 01 Jul 2019

It was on this day, 10th February, back in 1840 when Queen Victoria married her cousin, Prince Albert. The marriage was arranged, largely by her mother’s brother, who had been King of the Belgians since 1831.

The pair were without doubt in love though, a love which bore nine children and lasted until his premature death at the age of only 42 in 1861. The wedding was the first marriage of a reigning English queen since Bloody Mary almost three-hundred years earlier.

It was held in the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace, and afterwards the newlyweds went off to Windsor Castle for a three-day honeymoon, which Victoria described as most gratifying. She was pregnant within a few months.

We promote history by...

offering free articles and videos, providing free history experiences for children in schools and on weekends. Next year we will be visiting hospitals and providing unforgettable experiences to children who really need it and give them a chance to forget their condition, their treatment and their reality. Please join others who support our free projects by giving a small donation. We can only continue our great work with your help.
