“Victoria and Albert speedily assented. In Stockmar’s undertaking to “strengthen the good [and] subdue … the evil dispositions of our Nature,” Vicky would come through relatively psychologically intact. Her brother Bertie would not be so fortunate.”
Jerrold M. Packard, Victoria's Daughters

“The princess wrote to her mother of her feelings about these activities: “ … if one never sees poverty and always lives in that cold circle of Court people, one’s good feelings dry up, and I feel the want of going about and doing the little good that is in my power.” She added that “I am sure you will understand this.”
Jerrold M. Packard, Victoria's Daughters

“Few things excited Queen Victoria as much as death. Mourning in all its permutations and intricacies was one of the great constants of her life, eventually becoming for the monarch something near obsession.”
Jerrold M. Packard, Victoria's Daughters
