Charlotte Neave in St James's Palace, London - 10 February, 1840

from Letter from Charlotte Neave to her aunt, the Countess Dowager of Ilchester [Maria Fox-Strangways], 11 February 1840, pages 410–411:

When the trumpets sounded, though really in discord, we were all eagerness, and felt both for Prince Albert and the Queen, for I know not which looked the most uncomfortable when going to the Chapel; but on their return together they each had a colour, and with countenances much brightened. And just before the guns fired to announce that the ring was on the finger, a nice gleam of sunshine appeared, which my dear naval uncle will, I know, join with me in being sure is a happy omen.
