50 x 35cm

Discreetly, English history does not record the fact
that when Victoria, finding herself in the family
way yet again, remarked to her consort, "Albert
dearest, I think it's time you started using
French Letters," the prince replied, "But, my dear
Victoria, you know I'm German. How would I
Look wearing one of those French outfits?"
