THE COTOT. HER MAJESTY tlae Queen arrived at Windsor Castle on Friday evening, on her return from Balmoral. On Saturday her Majesty paid a visit to the metropolis, and in the afternoon hold a reception at B uckingham Palace, and afterwards returned to Windsor. The Prince of Wales has had another week of activity in such duties as become his rank at court, and his popularity seems rapidly to increase. The Princess is now quite well; and the infant Prince is in splendid condition. The Owl sta.tes, as if from official au- thority, that the young Prince will take the name of Christian, after his Danish relative. The Duchess of Cambridge and the Princess Mary are residing for a short time oil the Continent. THE Queen, their Royal Highnesses Princess Helena, Princess Louise, Princess Beatrice, Prince Arthur, and Prince Leopold, and the Ladies and Gen- tlemen in Waiting, attended Divine service on Sunday morning, in the private chapel at Windsor. The Hon. and Very Rev. the Dean of Windsor officiated. THE Prince of Wales, with Lieut.-Colonel..Keppel in Waiting, attended Divine service at the Chapel Royal, St. James's, on Sunday morning. The Com- munion Servise was read y the Rev. the Sab-dean, the Rev. J. C. Haden, and the Rev. H. M. Birch. Anthem, The Wilderness," 'Goss. Sung by Messrs. R. Barnby, Montem Smith, and Winn. Mr. Gross presided at the organ. The sermon was preached by the Rev. H. H. Birch, from St. John, chap. viii., verses 56, 57, 58. THE Queen, as at present arranged, it is believed, will pay a visit to Osborne early in the ensuing month, and then, after a residence of a short time at Windsor, will proceed to Germany to inaugurate the unveiling of the monument at Gotha to the Prince Consort. There will be a meeting of all the Royal family at that place, including the Prince and Princess of Wales; and doubtless many members of the reign- ing German families will assist in the solemnity. At the latter end of the year her Majesty will most pro- bably make another trip to Scotland. The movements of the Prince and Princess of Wales are not yet de. cided on, but it is believed the Princess will proceed to Frogmore shortly for a few days, as we are happy to be able (says the Court Journal) to report that the progress of the health of the Princess is highly satis- factory, and will enable her Royal Highness to take her departure from Marlborough. house at that "early date. The return of the Queen to Windsor was wit- nessed by a large concourse of the inhabitants of the town, who greeted her Majesty with the most re- spectful marks of loyalty, which were very graciously and kindly returned. It is pleasing to record that the health of her Majesty seems to have greatly improved during her residence in Scotland.
