18Apr1864, Luxuries of Royal Travelling

WINDSOR, Monday, April 18th, 1864.
—Soon after 4, we went to London with the Princesses (Ly. Caroline, Ld. Caithness, and Mr. West also in attendance) to a Philharmonic concert at Hanover Square : music out of Shakespeare principally, and partly in honour of his tercentenary. It was very good and delightful ; and I confess I enjoyed considerably the luxuries of Royal travelling and Royal places at the concert.
