Queen Victoria's diamond jubilee review at Spithead, 26 June 1897
At her Diamond Jubilee Review at Spithead on 26 June 1897, Queen Victoria was represented by the Prince of Wales. He was in the Royal yacht 'Victoria and Albert II', which can be seen to the right, flying the Royal standard. The Prince is reviewing the fleet including 21 battleships and 56 cruisers. The review was seen as an opportunity to demonstrate the importance of the nation's sea power and to underscore the significance and responsibilities of Empire. The inclusion of so many battleships was alone seen as confirmation of this supremacy.
