THE COURT. --+-- THE Queen h&s been eAjoying1 the bracing ail' 0 Balmoral, and during the delightful weather expe- rienced last week her Majesty took numerous walks and drives in the vicinity of the eastle. HER MAJESTY, it is said, will visit Germany m August next, and on the 24,th of that month will meet the Prince and Princess of Wales, the Prince and Princess Royal of Prussia, the Prince and Princess of Hesse, and all the members of the Royal family who intend to be prese-.t at the inauguration of the statue â of the late Prince Consort. THE Prince and Princess of Wales still remain at -Marlborough-house. Her Royal Highness is fast re- gaini-mg strength; in the meantime the Prince of Wales is sustaining the honours and discharging the duties of the Court with that freedom and energy to which "the nation is fast becoming accustomed. On Monday he opened the Dramatic College-hall. In the evening h dined with the Duchess of Cambridge at Kew. On Tuesday he dined at" Earl Spencer's. On Wednesday he held a levee on behalf of her Majesty, paying a. visit to the Strand Theaitre in the evening. On Thursday 'he held an investiture of the Order of the Eath. On Friday evening he attended a ball at Apsley-house; and on Saturday he dined at the Fishmongers'-hall. -1-Ier Royal Highness, the Princess, and the infant Prince are, as intimated, both doing remarkably well. Thi9 week His Royal Highness visited Ascot races, travelling from London by rail and returning to town the same evening. THERE is just a faint rumour (says the Court Journal) that the infant Prince will receive the name of Christian, after the Royal Dane his grandfather. THE Queen has now eight grandchildren, six of whom are boys. BY the gracious permission of the Queen, the East Terrace of Windsor Castle was opened to the public on Whit Monday and Tuesday. On the latter day the walks were crowded by the 4Nic of the country, who had come to Eton's annual celebration. This is the first time this noble promenade has been open on the above days during the last four years.
