This article has been mentioned by a media organization:

Cause of death[edit]

Did she die from a stroke? (217.35.237.72 (talk) 10:34, 23 June 2016 (UTC))

There's no indication of that. 31.54.202.183 (talk) 01:51, 22 August 2016 (UTC)

add the languages she speaks?[edit]

perhaps under the section of her early life, it would be good to add that she could speak Hindi, Urdu and Punjabi? This would give the reader a better context with her relationship with her Munshi and her empire. She was taught this in preparation to become the Empress of India. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 41.82.18.76 (talk) 23:35, 21 August 2016 (UTC)

We would need a source to do that. She didn't become Empress of India until 1876, and she didn't meet the Munshi till her Golden Jubilee (1887). 31.54.202.183 (talk) 01:55, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
The Munshi's lessons in Hindi-Urdu are covered already in the Golden Jubilee section, where they belong chronologically. DrKay (talk) 06:49, 22 August 2016 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 26 August 2016[edit]


Would it be possible to add a new page on the English Heritage Osborne page to the links at the foot of the page: http://www.english-heritage.org.uk/visit/places/osborne/queen-victoria/

31.222.211.51 (talk) 14:09, 26 August 2016 (UTC)

Spam: The building is only tangential to the queen's life, and link would attract links to every place Victoria visited.IdreamofJeanie (talk) 15:09, 26 August 2016 (UTC)
Twaddle. Osborne was one of her official residences – much more than just a "place Victoria visited". --Epipelagic (talk) 19:39, 29 September 2016 (UTC)

Removal of offensive term[edit]

Can I request that under the section 'Heir Presumptive', the potentially offensive term 'bastard' is replaced by the more neutral 'illegitimate' in the fourth line ('King William's bastard children'). (I'm waiting for a password reset as I haven't logged in for a while.) 202.4.70.206 (talk) 01:03, 4 November 2016 (UTC)
