Ballater Railway Station - 6

Well here is our Royal Arrival from London - Queen Victoria, together with her lady in waiting and dog.

Her Majesty will travel the short distance to Balmoral Castle in this horse-drawn carriage.

Victoria (Alexandrina Victoria; 24 May 1819 – 22 January 1901) was the monarch of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland from 20 June 1837 until her death. From 1 May 1876, she used the additional title of Empress of India.

Her reign of 63 years and 7 months, which is longer than that of any other British monarch and the longest of any female monarch in history, is known as the Victorian era. It was a period of industrial, cultural, political, scientific, and military change within the United Kingdom, and was marked by a great expansion of the British Empire.
