The Royal Visit to Cherbourg Anticipated
'The Royal Visit to Cherbourg Anticipated', 1858. The Emperor Napoleon III speaking to Queen Victoria A fine gun, Your Majesty. Queen Victoria replying Yes! Exactly like a number we have at Woolwich. Napoleon proudly shows off the huge cannon which presumably points out to sea, straight towards the south coast of England. Victoria subtly reinforces the notion of British military superiority with her remark that the new gun is just like 'a number we have at Woolwich'. Queen Victoria and Prince Albert visited France to attend the inauguration of the newly fortified Cherbourg. From Punch, or the London Charivari, July 31, 1858.
