"Victoria R.

"Her Majesty having agreed to a Marriage proposed between Her Royal Highness the Princess Mary Adelaide Wilhelmina Elizabeth, youngest daughter of his late Royal Highness the Duke of Cambridge, and His Serene Highness Francis Paul Charles Louis Alexander Prince of Tech, has thought fit to communicate it to the House of Commons.

"The many proofs which the House of Commons has afforded of their affectionate attachment to Her Majesty's Person and Family, leave Her Majesty no doubt of their readiness to enable Her Majesty to make a further provision for Her Royal Highness. V. R."
