This is one of the only pictures of Queen Victoria smiling.  I think this was around the time of her Golden Jubilee.  For special occasions, she would wear white shawls and other accent pieces with her black mourning.

The famous picture of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert with their daughter Victoria on her wedding day, 25 January 1858. The Queen is blurry because she couldn't stop shaking from the anxiety of her daughter leaving home.

The world's first postage stamp was issued by Great Britain in 1840. Featuring a bust of Queen Victoria, it has come to be known as the "Penny Black."
