From Queen Victoria to the German Crown Princess – Balmoral,  27 May 1887

Darling and Beloved Child, Truly, earnestly and most gratefully do I thank God that the (unnecessary though perhaps not unavoidable) alarm about precious Fritz1 has been dispelled and that your agony of uncertainty and suspense has been removed. I wish I could fly to you and clasp you in my arms and tell you just how I suffered for and with you… The one thing I am so anxious for, is that you should come over for the Jubilee, as now you can, and that you and your girls, at any rate, could be with me and I pray that dear Fritz may just be able to go to Westminster Abbey. It will not be long and I do so wish he could just ride with my sons, sons-in-law, grandsons and grandsons-in-law in front of my open carriage in which I should drive with you and dear Alix2, who is quite a daughter to me….

  1. The Crown Princess’s husband who would die of throat cancer the following year
  2. Alexandra of Denmark, Queen Victoria’s daughter-in-law
