Queen Victoria's 40th birthday was spent at Osborne in the Isle of Wight. Her two eldest sons were away but the remaining children had all done 'pieces of work, or drawings' for the Queen, and, meeting her with nosegays, they escorted their mother to her present table 'full of charming gifts.' Bambridge later photographed the Royal Family on the Terrace.
