We came across this impressive memorial to Prince Albert while visiting Kensington Gardens. It is a huge statue covered in gold leaf with intricate detail. Apparently, this memorial was built at a cost of £150,000 in 1862 and the refurbishment in 1990 cost much more....More

True love in stone and metal: Queen Victoria had this memorial erected in honor of her late husband, Prince Albert. It is very detailed and beautiful.
