THE QUEEN'S BOUDOIR. The Queen's private rooms at Windsor are scarcely ever shown to visitors, even when her Majesty is away from the castle. I have," says a writer in the Gentlewoman, lately been granted a peep into her sitting-room, and borne away with me a very charm- ing impression of the little harbour of refuge where so much of her time is spent. The room, for all its magnificence, has such an air of cosiness and domes- ticity Needlework, I think, always gives a homely look to any room, and there are many beautiful examples to be found here, already made familiar to our eyes at the School of Art in South Kensington. The Princess of Wales, Princess Christian and her daughters are devoted to art needlework, and their dainty fingers have no doubt executed for the Queen the elaborate bordenngs to table-cloths, cushions, and book-coveis to be seen about. The silk brocaded walls are half hidden with pictures. Here Landseer's Royal family at Home," and there, Von Angeli's admirable portrait of Princess Beatrice as a bride, while likenesses of r the late Prince Consort, the Empress Frederick, Princess Alice, the Duke of Clarence, and the young Hessian Princesses are distributed on cabmets and tables. In the centre of the room is the sofa where the Queen sits, with a table before her for books and papers. The carpet struck me as an £ old: fashioned—a plain, dark ground with bunches of light flowers at regular intervals. The inantlepiece is primly arranged with a big clock in the middle and vases on either side. A rack with a number of news- papers is there, too. Anywhere yo" g boudoir more luxurious, but from no »' a view so magnificent—that wonderful °u the Home-park-that never-ending line of perspec- tive—the Long Walk
