18 year-old Victoria receives the news of her accession from Lord Conyngham and the Archbishop of Canterbury. “I was awoke at 6 o’clock by Mamma, who told me the Archbishop Canterbury and Lord Conyngham were here and wished to see me. I got out of bed and went into my sitting room, alone, and saw them. Lord Conyngham then acquainted me that my poor Uncle, the King, was no more, and had expired at 12 minutes past 2 this morning, and consequently that I am the Queen.”

I CAN RELATE

This morning when I woke up, I was Mia Thermopolis. But now, I choose to be, forevermore, Amelia Mignonette Thermopolis Renaldi, princess of Genovia.
