THE COURT. THE Queen has been living very quietly at Cliveden oaring1 the past week, and has now returned to Windsor. HER Majesty, Princess Helena, Princess Louisa, and Prince Leopold, attended Divine service on San- day morning, the Household being also present. The Rev. C. Kingsley, chaplain to her Majesty, officiated. THE Queen, it is expected, will leave Windsor for Balmoral oa the 13th. Her Majesty wiU only make a short sojourn in Scotland on this occasion. THE Prince and Princess of Wales are now at Marl- borough-house. Their Royal Highnesses drove to Ascot Heath on Tuesday and Thursday in last week, to see the races. Perhaps our lady friends would like to know how the latter was dressed. Her Royal Highness wore pink on Tuesday, and on Thursday was dressed all in blue. A blue dress with a tulle slip, a blue silk jacket with a tulle slip, trimmed with rich white lace, a tulle bonnet with blue ribbons and blue nemophilas, became her Royal 'Highness admirably, and it only needed, to render her costume perfect, the bouquet of tea-roses which she carried in her hand. The Princess Mary wore a dress of lavender and white stripes, a mantle of llama bordered with white silk, and trimmed with black lace and black velvet ribbon, and a bonnet of white delicately bordered with lavender. ON Sunday afternoon their Royal Highnesses the Prince and Princess of Wales, accompanied by his Royal Highness the Prince of Denmark and the Dake of Sutherland, and attended by Lieutenant-General Knollys, Major Teesdale, and suite, drove from Titness- park, Sunningdale, in order to attend Divine service at the Chapel Royal of St. George. The Royal party occupied a couple of phaetons, each drawn by two greys, the Prince of Wa,les and Prince of Denmark driving. Their Royal Highnesses took their seats in the stalls of the Knights of the Garter, where they remained during the service, which was conducted by the Rev. E. Tapsfield, minor canon, and the Rev. G. Frewer, the former intoning, and the latter reading the lessons. The Very Rev. the Dean of Windsor was in residence. The servioe was suug to Elvey in D, the anthem being "I beheld, and lo, a great multi. tude," also to Elvey, the solos, which were executed by Master Hancock (treble), Mr. Dyson (tenor), and Sir. Brigg (bass). Dr. Elvey, the organist of the chapel, presided at the organ. At the close of the service their Royal Highnesses left the chapel, which Was orowded by visitors, re-entered their carriages, and returned to Titness-park, their departure being Witnessed by a large assemblage of ladies and gentle- men. EVERY one must be aware that Prince Alfred has taken the title of Duke of Edinburgh, but as the public seems to be in some little doubt as to the history of this title, bestowed OH the 24th ult., by her Majesty on her second son, Prince Alfred, it may not be out of place to mention the conne"tion of the Royal family with the peerage in question. His Royal Highness Prince William Henry, son of Frederick Prince of Wales, and brother of King George III., was aieat^d. on the 19th of November, 1764, Duke of Gloucester and Edinburgh. The latter title was not jised, though both were British peerages—the Crown having had no power to create a Scotch peerage since the passing of the Act of Union on the 1st of May, 1707. The elder Duke of Gloucester and Edinburgh died in 1805, and was succeeded by his son, Prince William Frederick, at whose death, without issue, on the 30th November, 1834, the two peerages became The title of the Duke of Edinburgh is there- fore a new creation in favour of bis Royal Highness "rinoe Alfred, and will be borne as his first title.
