THE COURT. THE Court was held at Osbcrne during the past week. The Qaeen took frequent drives and walks in the neighbourhood, and her Majesty, attended by_the Princesses, appeared at Ryde the other day, and waited on the jetty to receive the Prince and Princess of Wales, who were on board the Royal yacht. The 'Queen wore a white flannel dress and jacket, both trimmed with crape. The Princesses had dresses of the same material, but relieved with blue silic in- stead of crape. "While waiting the arrival of the yacht, her Majesty observed a lady in the crowd whose costume showed that although she had lost her legal protector, she was not wholly insensible to the value of personal appearance. Her Majesty sent for her, inquired her name and the particulars of her bereave- ment, and having conversed most graciously for a few minutes, presented the youthful widow with her "bouquet. Alas for the fair recipient, the flowers were not immortelle! THE Queen, accompanied by Princess Louise, Prince Leopold, Princess Beatrice, and the Princess of Leinin. gen, embarked on Saturday afternoon on board the Reyalyacht Alberta, Captain his Serene Highness the Prince of Lsiningen, and steamed down the Solent to. wards Hurst Castle. In attenddance were Lady Waterpark, Lady Augusta Stanley, and Major-General Seymour. HER MAJESTY, their Highnesses the Duke of Edin- burgh, Princess Louise, and Princess Beatrice, attended JUivino Service on Sunday morning at Whippingham Church. The Rev. George Prothero officiated. ON Thursday afternoon their Royal Highnesses the Prince and Princess of Wales, attended by Lieutenant- General Knollys, Major Teesdale, and suite, and ac- companied by the infant princes, Albert Victor and George, left town on a visit to York. Their Royal Highnesses drove to the Great Northern terminus at King's-cross, where they were received by Major Amsinck and Mr. Faber, directors of the company; Mr. Seymour Clarke, general manager; the Marquis of Hartington, Lord Royston, and other gentlemen. Mr. Cockehott, the superintendent of the line, and Mr. Vizier, the station-master, were also in attendance. A largo number of spectators witnessed the departure of the Prince and Princess, who left King's-cross in a special train at one o'clock, under the charge of Mr. Cookshott, and proceeded, vid Peterborough, Gran- tham, Newark, and Doncaster to York, which was Teaohed about half-past five o'clock. Their Royal Highnesses remained the guests of tho Archbishop of York at Bishopthorpe for a oouple of days, and after- wards proceeded to Abergeldie, in order that the Prince may enjoy the sport of deerstalk- ing. The Prince and Princess are expected to reside at Abergeldie till about the end of Sep- tember. His Royal Highness will keep his birthday at Sandringham. The horses of the Prince and Princess of Wales, with six carriages, were dis- patched on Wednesday from Euston-square for Scot- land. The great event of the week in commemoration with the Royal visit was the volunteers of the North of England, who, to the number of 20,000, were re- viewed on Knavesmire by the Duke of Cambridge, in the presence of the Prince and Princess of Wales. ALTHOUGH the State Apartments of Windsor Castle are closed to the public on Wednesdays and Saturdays, the Royal mews may be inspected every day in the week except Sundays, from one till three o'clock, but when the Queen is at Windsor the time of exhibition is from one to half-past two o'clock.
