London, May 10, 1899 - In the absence of Queen Victoria, Princess Christian presided over the third Drawing Room of the season, reports The New Yorks Times. The weather was very fine, but, as expected, large crowd gathered around the Mall. However, the "customary gorgeuous State processions" starting at Marlborough House until St. James' Palace "were lacking." Likewise, the various royal residences remained unoccupied this season. The Prince of Wales is at Newmarket today, while the Princess of Wales and the Duchess of York are out of town. The only members of the royal family present at court today are Princess Victoria of Wales and the Duchess of Connaught.

Among the dignitaries who were around included US Ambassafor Joseph H. Choate, together with his staff. The ambassador's wife presented Mrs. Alfred E. Bates, wife of the retiring military attache and Miss Bates; Mrs. William M. Osborne and Miss Osborne, wife and daughter of the Consul General in London; Mrs. John B. Mott of Indiana and Miss Ingraham.

A Day in the Life of The Queen: How Queen Elizabeth II Spends Her Day

Queen Elizabeth II is a stickler for order, and so routine is a part of Her Majesty’s day-to-day life. She rises at around 8.30 am and would be greeted by a piper who plays at 9am on the terrace beneath her apartment at Buckingham Palace. When longtime attendant and confidante Margaret MacDonald was still in service, Don Coolican noted that  Bobo, as The Queen affectionately called MacDonald, would awaken her, “bringing in a cup of tea and a plate of biscuits handed over by the footman.” The Queen’s corgis are the first creatures to grace The Queen , who would also beg to be given biscuits, Coolican writes.

That same day, Edward, now known as Duke of Windsor, entered into an agreement with his younger brother and successor, King George VI, that secured him £25,000 annually for the rest of his life. However, the King later renounced this agreement and instead offered him a smaller amount which would cease upon the King's death. The condition is that Edward should never step into British soil unless invited by government.
