"Queen Victoria" :- The statue of Queen Victoria stands on lawns that lay between Marlborough Place and Grand Parade in the city of Brighton, England. Her gaze is fixed firmly on the huge ornate stone gatehouse gate that was the entrance to the grounds of the Royal Pavilion which she first visited in 1837. Queen Victoria felt uncomfortable with the palace because of its association with her extravagant uncle, King George IV. She finally sold her uncle’s pleasure palace to the town of Brighton for £50,000 in 1850.
