"Her Majesty the Queen breathed her last at 6.30 p.m., surrounded by her children and grand-children." With this notice, pinned to the entrance gate of Osborne House, Queen Victoria's doctors announced the death of the most powerful woman in the world, who had ruled for more than six decades. Offering fascinating insights into how people respond to the death of a monarch, Stewart Richards has delved into the archives to put together a definitive view of Victoria in her final days, followed by the immediate reaction and aftermath of her death, and the state funeral of February 2, 1901.
