If she did, she kept very quiet about it. She tended to spend her summer holidays in the Castle of Mey in the north of Scotland.

May have been Queen Victoria. Read somewhere she spent summers in France.

Thanks for that link. Too bad the article did not include photos of the house as I love his work. He is a truly gifted artist and furniture maker.

I think that's what I had seen on TV, the grand production of getting her there. Oh, those Glorious Golden Eras.

Queen Victoria visited Aix-les-Bains on several occassions - there is a statue of her there. She considered it more respectable than Biarritz which was favoured bu her son.

Please, Britain not England.

The Queen Mother (Elizabeth, 1900-2002) was herself a Scot, if this is who you mean, and there hasn't been a Queen of England since 1707.
