'Embonpoint' is a term I've come across a few times - does anyone know what it means?  :-?
"Embonpoint" means "stoutness" in French.

it was also used to mean pregnancy. A polite way of saying it.

of course.. my fault...

her great-grandson George VI 6th Feb. I think the first half of the years is not so good for British sovereigns.

Through marriage she would also have been a Duchess of Saxony.
As spouse of an agnate of the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha she would in theory be entitled to this titulary - some of the titles substantive, most of them just in pretence:
Princess of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, Duchess of Saxony, Juliers, Cleves and Berg, also of Angria and Westphalia, Landgravine in Thuringia, Margravine of Meissen, Princely Countess of Henneberg, Countess of the Mark and Ravensberg, Lady of Ravenstein and Tonna, et cetera.

At the end of her reign, her full title was:

Her Majesty Victoria, by the Grace of God, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. Queen, Defender of the Faith, Empress of India.

R.I.
And the full Latin style was:
Sua Maiestas Victoria, Dei Gratia Britanniarum Regina, Fidei Defensor, IndiƦ Imperatrix.

In the Latin style "Britanniarum", the plural genitive of Britain, or "of the Britains", was (and is) used instead of the UK of GB & I!

Edward VII adopted the designation "Britanniarum omnium rex", King of All/Every/Both the Britains, which strangely still seems to be the usual Latin style, although the state's Latin name is just Britanniarum Regnum, with the literal translation "Coniunctum Britanniae Magnae et Hiberniae Septentrionalis Regnum" a secondary option.

In contrast the Emperors of all the Russias was in Latin, as in the original Russian, usually styled "totius RussiƦ Imperator", Emperor of All Russia, in the singular.

PAST & PRESENT
John Brown & Queen Victoria at Osborne, by Landseer. This picture matched up more by accident than design, and I got an obliging passing thunder cloud too.

    I also got very wet.

The third photo posted by Katmaxoz...just extraordinarily candid!  I've never seen QV like this...I just love it...you can almost imagine being in the very room with her.
