Princess Victoria in her Journal – 28 July 1834

The separation (from her half-sister Princess Feodora) was indeed dreadful. I clasped her in my arms, and kissed her and cried as if my heart would break, so did she dearest Sister. We then tore ourselves from each other in the deepest grief… When I came home I was in such a state of grief that I knew not what to do with myself. I sobbed and cries most violently the whole morning… My dearest best sister was friend, sister, companion all to me, we agreed so well together in all our feelings and amusements. I love no one better than her.1
