r- THE COURT. t THE business attendant upon the prorogation and dissolution of Parliament provided more than usual occupation for her Majesty the Queen during the past week. Councils were repeatedly held, consultations were frequent; and technical duties were multiplied. It is unnecessary to state that her Majesty was puncti- liously correct and formal in these matters. She is in good health. In addition to State engagements, she has been oalled upon to show her Royal courtesies to the Queen of the Netherlands, whom she has visited at Claridge's Hotel. The Prince of Wales has been very active. On Monday he went to the Wellington College, presided at the ceremonials of the speech day, and delivered an earnest address, which may be said to have created almost a sensation. In the evening he gave a grand dinner party to the Queen of the Nether- lands. On Tuesday, he worked hard in the afternoon in extinguishing1 a fire which broke out at Marlborough- house, which we are happy to say did but trifling mis. chief. In the evening he, accompanied by the Princess, went to Windsor Castle on a visit to her Majesty. On Thursday the Prince came to town to preside over a preliminary meeting of the promoters of the pro- posed Central Hall of Arts and Sciences, returning to Windsor in the evening. The infant Prince was christened on Friday. ON Sunday her Majesty the Queen, their Royal High- nesses the Prince and Princess of Wales, their Royal Highnesses Princess Helena, Princess Louise, Prince Leopold, and Princess Beatrice, and the Ladies and Gentlemen in Waiting, attended Divine service in the private chapel at Windsor. The Right Rev. the Bishop of Worcester, Clerk of the Closet, preached the sermon. HER MAJESTY, with the Princesses Helena and Louise and Prince Arthur, took their departure from Windsor for Osborne on Monday. Also, on the same day, their Royal Highnesses the Prince and Priiacess of Wales left Windsor for Marlborough-house. IT is said that the Emperor of the French will invite our Queen to visit France, seeing that it is her Majesty's intention to make so long a stay at -n,.naóA1a .A..JI"J.;Iv.a.hI.
