THE QUEEN AT BUFFALO BILL'S WILD WEST SHOW.

The Queen, accompanied by Prince and Princess Henry of Battenberg, [1] paid a visit to Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show, at Earl's Court, on Wednesday afternoon. Her Majesty drove in a closed carriage from Buckingham Palace at five o'clock, and was loudly cheered by crowds of people who had gathered along the route to West Kensington. Her Majesty was received at the exhibition by Colonel Cody and several of the directors. The members of the wild west show went through several of their peculiar performances, finishing with the spectacle of the attack on the Denver Coach. [2] The Queen drove direct from the show to Paddington Station, and proceeded by special train at 6.45 o'clock to Windsor. A crowd had assembled at the station, and Her Majesty was again cheered.

Note 1: Prince Henry of Battenberg is Colonel Prince Henry Maurice (1858-1896), a descendant of the Grand Ducal House of Hesse, who became a member of the British Royal Family in 1885 through his marriage to Princess Beatrice, who was Beatrice Mary Victoria Feodore (1857-1944), the fifth daugher and youngest child of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.
