THE QUEEN'S AiifclVAL. "l- Telegraphic messages wereat once despatched to theQueetk. at Osborne, the Wnfsfcrs oTafeM. an&tBKiatly goyspapegi while tbe bells were rtutt tfcd the ffhofaroroagh of wTt^(, thrown into ast^^gplMatnt ontteineBt. About 1 o'«fl^Hjttaturday Her Majesty the Queev acting upon. maternal feelings, with thek Royal HighnesseH Princess Helena and Beatrice^ at- tended by Colonel T, M. Biddulph, Colonel the Hon! C. B. Phipps, Lady Churchill, and the Hon. MrftJ Bruce, arrived at the Windsor terminus of the Greajl Western Railway, having left Osborne at 20 minutes past 9 in the morning. The Royal party travelled in a Special train from Gosport by the South Western Railway to Basingstoke, and thence to Windsor, which was reached at 12.55, by the Great Western Railway." Here a large crowd of the principal inhabitants of the town, including the mayor and other officials, was assembled on the platform, while the Prince of Wales drove from Frogmore, and waited at the station to receive his Royal mother. As the train entered the terminus Her Majesty was received with the moat enthusiastic cheering, and the scene was quite anova- tion. His Royal Highness, when the train paused, entered the State saloon and affectionately embraced his Royal parent. On alighting from the train, the Royal party was received by Mr. Grierson, Mr. Kelley, and Mr. Matthews, of the Great Western Railway, and conducted to one of the Royal carriages, which was in readiness outBide the Queen's private entrance, and into which Her Majesty and the Prince of Wales entered, and immediately drove through the town to Frogmore Houston a visit to the Princess Wftks, thptJpuices^eB and suite leaving the station-3 r: the same time. i It was observed that Her Majesty on entering the carriage was much affected by the kind and loyal re- ception she had just met with from those around her indeed, so much so, that, after having taken her seat in the carriage, she bowed her head, and was almost affected to tears; while the Prirce, though conversing with her, could hardly draw her attention, so much was she overcome by her feelings and the excitement of the event. Her Majesty was still in mourning, though the Princesses wore only half-mourning, their bonnets being trimmed with blue. The Queen re- mained with the Princess of Wales at Frogmore the whole afternoon, till a late hour in the evening, and afterwards returned to the Castle. Earl Granville, the Lord President of the Privy Council, arrived most opportunely at Frogmore on Friday afternoon on a visit to the Prince of Wales, and was thus present at the birth of the Prince. His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales seems much pleased at the addition to his family, while the town and neighbourhood all day were in a state of joyous excitement. The precincts of the Castle and the railway stations exhibited scenes of unusual bustle through the sudden advent of the Queen, which called forth all the ener- gies of the various Royal purveyoril, who thus, without any notice or preparation, were called upon to supply the immediate wants of the Royal Family, suite, and household at the Castle, the domestics and members of which were. continually arriving.
