    I may or may not have a problem with postboxes.

    Did you know? Postboxes installed in the Victorian Era had the letters VR on them - standing for Victoria Regina.

    Also regina rhymes with vagina.

    It doesn't for me. >>; Now I'm curious about how you say them where they actually rhyme.

    @Barnabas Skeeter

    When it comes to stuff like Victoria Regina and Elizabeth Regina, they do rhyme. Regina the name doesn't but that's possibly just incorrect. That's why I said, Regina rhymes with vagina.

    Because aristocracy is interesting.

    Did you know? The current Duke of Wellington is Henry Wellesley, the third duke, and grandson of the first (but nephew of the second).

    Did you know? The current Duke of Marlborough is George Spencer-Churchill, the sixth duke, who is also the uncle of Sir Winston Churchill.

    Did you know? The current Earl of Sandwich is Edward Montagu, the 8th Earl. He is also the great-great-grandson of the 4th Earl, after whom the sandwich was named.

    Did you know? The current Earl Spencer is John Spencer, the 8th Earl, and he is the great-great-great-uncle of Diana, Princess of Wales.

    More to come maybe.

    So I didn't know this until I saw this book about George V today, apologies if you guys knew. Although I did know that he was the second child, I thought his elder sibling was a sister, not a brother.

    Did you know? The person currently second in line to the throne is HRH Prince Albert Victor of Wales, he however will die in 1892 and never become King.

    Did you know? Edward VII is currently HRH Albert Edward, Prince of Wales.

    Did you know? George V is currently HRH Prince George of Wales, and isn't directly in line for the throne.

    Did you know? Victorian bathing suits were only really suitable for paddling, so male swimmers would use male-only nudist beaches.

    I've just found a book on the victorian season and omg so much new stuff
    Did you know? On the day of her coming out, family and friends would send a debutante tiny bouquets of small buds and blossoms- no bigger than a saucer and very dense- which would then be displayed at the ball and at all parties held in her home.

    Having less than thirty was considered mortifying.
