  1. Breathtaking information!
    I thrust the inhabitants of Victoria look a little
    happier than the above portrait of the dear old girl???
    They certainly appeared quite cheerful when I visited the
    city.
    Adam: Closer to your place is Charlotte, NC.
    Named after Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, Queen Consort
    to none other than Mad King George III.
    Also a city where the good citizens showed no symptoms of madness associated
    with George III. Thank God for that.

    1. Bob.
      The answer to your query I am 100% sure is no.
      She however did as a young queen visit her relatives in
      Europe.

  14. It's a great city, I've been there several times. On Victoria Day here in Canada (May 24-ish every year), they always have a big parade in Victoria. It's the only Canadian city that does. But that's how much they love their Queen.
