The TV wedding was beautifully done, and the wedding dress lovely, but it was not an exact copy of Victoria's wedding dress. The dress the queen wore, at the Chapel Royal of St James's Palace on the 10th February in 1840, was made of silk satin and Honiton lace.
'I NEVER, NEVER spent such an evening!!! MY DEAREST DEAREST DEAR Albert ... his excessive love & affection gave me feelings of heavenly love & happiness I never could have hoped to have felt before! He clasped me in his arms, & we kissed each other again & again! His beauty, his sweetness & gentleness – really how can I ever be thankful enough to have such a Husband! ... to be called by names of tenderness, I have never yet heard used to me before – was bliss beyond belief! Oh! This was the happiest day of my life!'
Isn't love grand ?
