A Lasting Tribute

A lovely Lady I know from one of the loops I'm on has written an article about the Royal Mausoleum at Frogmore in Windsor. Actually, its more about Victoria and her grief and how she handled it. Anyway, its a great article to check out.

What a great article. Victoria's mourning of her husband influenced the strict mourning customs of the time in not only England but America. The seclusion of the bereaved and the wearing of black for a set time period for the widow and other female family members was influenced directly by Victoria's loss.
