THE COURT. -+- THE Queen and junior branches of the Royal family are residing at Osborne-house. Her Majesty, Prince and Princess Louis of Hesse, Princess Louise, Prince Arthur, Princess Beatrice, and the Princess of Leiningen, attended Divine service at Osborne, on Sunday morning, the ladies and gentlemen in waiting being in attendance. The Rev. R. Duckworth officiated. PRINCE ARTHUR and Prince Louis of Hesse, attended by Major Elphinstone and Captain Von Westerweller went in the Royal yacht Victoria and Albert, Captain the Prince7of Leiningen, to Portland on Saturday, and visited the fortifications and convict prison there, re- turning in the evening to Osborne. Their Royal High- nesses were received by Lieut.-Colonel Macdonald, com- manding the 2nd battalion of the 13th Regiment (Prince Albert's Regiment of Light Infantry), and by Captain Tyler, commanding the Royal Engineers, who conducted them round the works also by Mr. Clifton and Maior Hickey, the governor and deputy-governor of the prison, who conducted their Royal Highnesses through the establishment. asir John Cowell had the honour of accompanying their Royal Highnesses. THE Court Journal says last season her Majesty did not return from the Highlands before the first week in No- vember. The Queen will not remain so long in Scotland this season, as it is considered too cold for the state of her Majesty's health. The Court will arrive at Windsor from Balmoral about the middle of October, and remain there for the winter season. THEIR Royal Highnesses the Prince and Princess Louis of Hesse will shortly close their visit to her Majesty, and take their departure for the Continent. THEIR Royal Highnesses the Prince and Princess Christian are expected to return to their residence, Frogmore Lodge, on or about the 15th of August. THE Prince of Wales, attended by Captain Ellis, was present on Saturday afternoon at the christening of the infant daughter of the Prince and Princess of Teck at Kensington Palace. THE Prince of Wales, with Captain Ellis in waiting, attended Divine service at the Chapel Royal, St. James's, on Sunday. The Communion Service was read by the Rev. the Sub-dean and the Rev. Thomas Helmore. Anthem, 0 sing unto God (Green). Sung by Messrs. R. Barnby and Cummings. Mr. Cooper presided at the organ. The sermon was preached by the Rev. the Sub-dean, from St. Matthew xx. 23. The Duke of Cam- bridge and the Grand Duke and Grand Duchess of Mecklenburg Strelitz attended the service. THE health of the Princess of Wales is, we are glad to hear, rapidly improving, and great hope is enter- tained that the power of movement will be ultimately restored in the affected joint. It is believed that her Royal Highness will be sufficiently recovered to under- take the journey to Wiesbaden early in August. A RUMOUR is current in Ross-shire (says the Inverness Courier) that the Princess of Wales has accepted an offer by her Grace the Duchess of Sutherland to place Castle Leod at the disposal of her Royal Highness, with a view of trying the effects of the Strathpeffer waters. Castle Leod is a picturesque old baronial residence, part of the patrimony of the Duchess of Sutherland as Countess of Cromartie, and is in the immediate neighbourhood of the mineral wells of Strathpeffer. WE hear that her Royal Highness the Princess of Wales will not this year pay a visit to Deeside. This resolution is said to have been arrived at in consequence of her Royal Highness's long indisposition. The Prince of Wales, it is expected, will go down to the grouse shooting soon after the season commences, and will occupy rooms in Balmoral Castle during the fortnight or so to which his stay will be limited. Great regret is expressed in the district that their Royal Highnesses will not this year make a sojourn at Abergeldie. We understand, however, that the Castle there will be occupied either by some members of the Royal Family or by part of the suite in attendance on her Majesty during her autumn visit to her Highland residence.
