Queen Victoria doesn’t have the best reputation when it comes to humour. However, here she is smiling.
The nature of Victorian-era photography, especially earlier Victorian-era photography meant that it was almost impossible to smile for long enough for the shot to be taken. This picture, from the late 1880s, is only one piece of evidence that she was in fact often amused.
Other evidence comes from family records, where her children often talk of her smiling and laughing.
However, I guess this is just like Marie Antoinette’s cake comment. Totally fabricated – not that anyone cares.
