THE Queen arrived at Balmoral Castle on the 23rd of May at a quarter before three in the afternoon accom- panied by Prince and Princess Christian, Princess Louise, Princess Beatrice, Prince Leopold, and Prince Christian Victor. Her Majesty was attended by the Duchess Dowager of Athole, the Hon. Mrs. Gordon, General the Hon. C. Grey, Lord C. Fitzroy, Mr. Legg, Mr. Sahl, and Dr. Jenner. Lady Susan Melville was in attendance on Princess Christian. Her Majesty and the Royal family posted from Aboyne, and the suite went by rail as far as Ballater. PRINCE ARTHUR, attended by Major Elphinstone, arrived the same evening from Blackheath. THE 24th of May, being her Majesty's birthday, all the servants belonging to Balmoral and their families came up to the castle in the morning to offer their con- gratulations on the anniversary. THE Queen, accompanied by Princess Beatrice, Prince Arthur, and Prince Leopold, rode out the morning after her Majesty's arrival on ponies. The Queen, accom- panied by either the Princesses Christian, Louise, or Beatrice, has taken frequent exercise, both equestrian and pedestrian, in the immediate neighbourhood of Balmoral. THE Court will return to Windsor on Tuesday, the 18th of June. THE Times of the 27th of May has the following notice "We are authorised to state that the Drawing- room announced to be held at St. James's Palace on Saturday, the 8th of June, by her Royal Highness the Princess Louis of Hesse (Princess Alice of Great Britain and Ireland) has been postponed till Thursday, the 27th of June. HER Royal Highness the Princess Mary Adelaide was safely delivered of a Princess at one minute before midnight on the 26th May. Aceording to the medical bulletin, her Royal Highness and the infant Princess are doing perfectly well. THE Prince and Princess of Wales will remain some time longer at Marlborough-house. Her Royal Highness is making progress towards convalescence, but it will be some time before she will have the free use of the knee joint. THE Prince of Wales, attended by Colonel Kingscote, Major Teesdale, and the Hon.

In the evening the Prince of Wales presided at the annual dinner of the 10th Hussars, at Willis's-rooms. In attendance on his Royal Highness were General Sir William Knollys and Major Teesdale. PRINCESS ALICE OF HESSE-DARMSTADT is daily ex- pected at Marlborough-house, on a visit to the Prince and Princess of Wales, and also for the purpose of hold- ing Drawing-rooms in England. ON Sunday afternoon the East Terrace of Windsor Castle, with the beautiful garden and fountain, was thrown open to the public, owing to the absence of the Queen and Court. The grand band of the 2nd Life Guards, under the direction of the bandmaster, Mr. Froehnert, played a choice selection of musical pieces, and the terrace was in consequence crowded with a large and fashionable assemblage of promenaders. THE Queen has been pleased, under her Majesty's Royal Sign Manual and the Great Seal, to declare her Royal will and pleasure that the sons and daughters born of the marriage of his Royal Highness Prince Christian of Schleswig-Holstein with her Royal High- ness Princess Helena Augusta Victoria shall, at all times, hold and enjoy the style, title, and attribute of "Highness" prefixed to their respective Christian names, or any titles of honour which may belong to them and further to declare her will and pleasure that the Earl Marshal of England, or his deputy for the time being, do see this declaration kept, and cause the same to be duly registered in her Majesty's College of Arms, to the end that the Officers of Arms and all others upon occa- sion may take full notice and have knowledge thereof.
