We are not Amused : Phrases


A quotation, attributed to Queen Victoria.



This supposed quotation was attributed to Queen Victoria by Caroline Holland in Notebooks of a Spinster Lady, 1919. Holland attests that Victoria made the remark in 1900, but supplies no details of the circumstances. Other reports have suggested that the line wasn't an example of the 'royal we', but that Victoria was speaking on behalf of all the ladies present at court.
