M i fOENTBAl-NEWa TBUWKAM.J A __L Lynk, Thursday dUnnd Sandringham, giving the whole country around banari s The household was th! BAarlv this morning making final preparations f i'hTdlv's festivities. Before retiring to rest f°r. nj„ht, Prince Albert Victor of Wales, ho to-day attains his majority, received agectionate congratulations of his Royal parents, and of many of his illustrious relatives. This morning the con- gratulations were renewed, and many compli- mentary surprises were prepared for the young prince and for the Prince and Princess of Wales on meeting their guests at the breakfast table. Congratulations from all quarters were received by telegraph (there being a private wire at the gr house), very early, and the flow is in- creasing as the day advances. Outside of the house itself there is but very little to indicate the celebration of any domestic rejoicings in the Royal family. The broadway leading to the Prince's exercise grounds, where the circus entertainment is to be given later in the day, is decorated with flags, banners, and yards of gay bunting but the general aspect of these and the immediate ground is little changed. The first portion of the horses and camels, forming part of the circus, arrived yesterday, and the remainder, including two elephants, came by special train early this morning. This part of the programme is principally for the bene- fit of the villagers around and the tenantry of Sandringham. The principal streets and buildings of the borough of Lynn are gaily decorated with flags and bunting, and extensive preparations have been made for illuminating this fine old his- torical town. A deputation from Lynn this morning will present Prince Albert Victor with a gold cup in fac simile of the cup presented to the borough by King John. During the morning the members of the Royal family were photo- graphed in groups. WINDSOR, Thursday morning.—The coming of age of Prince Albert Victor of Wales, was ob- served at Windsor this morning by the ringing of peals from the bells of St. John's Church, the Chapel Royal, St. George's, Windsor Castle, and the churches in the neighbourhood. The Mayor, Mr J. Olbin Harris, issued a notice calling upon the inhabitants of the Royal borough to flag their houses. This was responded to, and a vast quantity of bunting was displayed, the Guildhall being com- pletely covered. The Royal Standard was hoisted, and Royal salutes were fired in the long walk; facing Frogmore House, where the young prince was born. In the evening a fancy dress ball will take place in the Town-hall to celebrate the event. The mayor, corporation, and bur- gesses of Windsor forwarded to his Royal High- ness a congratulatory address, which was beauti- fully illuminated. LONDON, Thursday Morning.—The occasion was celebrated in London by the ringing of peals at various West end churches, while flags were hoisted at the Govern- ment offices, and the band of the Grenadier Guards played a selection m the court- yard of St. James's Palace during the ceremony of mounting and changing the Queen's Guards. PORTSMOUTH, Thursday morning.—In celebra- tion of tfia attainment of his majority by Prince Albert Victor, the Royal Standard was hoisted at all Government establishments at Portsmouth to-day, and the ships in the har- bour hoisted masthead flags. The Royal salute will be tired at noon from the flagship, and the saluting battery and flags are flying from ctaba and all public buildings. Prince Henry of Battenburg leaves Osborne this morning, to attend the festivities at Sandringham. SANDRINGHAM, 11 o clock,——Most of the guests who are to take part in the rejoicings consequent upon the coming of age of Prince Albert Victor have now arrived, hnd are assembled in the house awaiting the arrival of the various deputa- tions which are expected to reach her shortly before noon. The deputation for Norwich will meet one from Lynn stasiou, and will thence proceed in procession by road. Lynn Station has been profusely decorated with flags and bunting containing words of welcome. The Norwich Corporation present two addresses of congratulation-one to the Prince and Princess of Wales, and the other to Prince Albert Victor, whom they beg to accept a facsimile of the ancient rosewater ewer and salver, being part of the corporation plate. The presentation takes place in the ball-oom. A dinner will afterwards be given to the servants on the estate. When the deputations arrive they will be received by the Prince of Wales and the young Princes at Norwich-gate. The weather is splendid, and everybody seems to be in good spirits. The tenahts and officers of the household have been busy congratulating the family. Many telegrams of congratulation have arrived. To-day's Morning Post is authorised to state that the Prince of Wales has no intention of ask- ing for a Parliamentary grant for Prince Albert Victor on the attainment of bis majority.
