The flora and fauna of Cubbon Park capture our attention more than anything else. But when you take time to look closely at the statue, you will marvel at its sheer grandeur. Sculpted by Sir Thomas Brock, the 11 feet high marble statue is larger than life. It brings out the personality of Queen Victoria, who had been the Monarch of Great Britain from 1837 till 1901, depicting a rather proud, stern person with pronounced features.
In 1906, the statue was unveiled in the city by George Frederick Ernest Albert, Prince of Wales and Duke of Cornwall and York, making it stand in all its glory in its 111th year. Even though there is a wealth of history to the statue, and it was made to appear imposing, the busy Bengalureans would probably refer to it as just another landmark. As the workers are busy in a discussion on the instructions given to them, life continues as usual in the Park.
How many people unveiled the Queen Victoria statue at Cubbon Park?
This was a question in my English exam.
"...the statue was unveiled in the city by George Frederick Ernest Albert, Prince of Wales and Duke of Cornwall and York,"
It is usual for royal children to have four (or more) Given Names, honouring previous members of the royal family.
Prince George Frederick Ernest Albert had the titles:
Prince of Wales
Duke of Cornwall
Duke of York
Today, Prince Charles is the Prince of Wales and Duke of Cornwall
Prince Phillip is the Duke of York.
