Prince Alfred Ernest Albert 1844 - 1900




Prince Alfred Ernest Albert 1844 - 1900





Prince Alfred Ernest Albert. Painted for Queen Victoria by Franz Winterhalter in 1865. Oil on Canvas Royal Collection.
During a visit to England in 1859-60 The Governor of the Cape Colony, Sir George Grey suggested to Queen Victoria that while her eldest son was about to pay a Royal Visit to America, (to inaugurate the Victoria Bridge across the St. Lawrence) Prince Alfred, her second son, should “confer a similar distinction” on South Africa and act as the Queen’s representative in the ceremony marking the commencement of the harbour improvements in Table Bay. Victoria concurred and Prince Alfred left England on 5th May 1860 aboard the steam frigate “Euryalus” arriving, via Bahia and Rio de Janeiro, in Simon’s Bay on 24th July. Alfred was still only sixteen but had already been in the Navy since the age of twelve.
After touring the Cape for seven weeks, on the 17th of September the Table Bay breakwater ceremony was held and Alfred pulled a trigger to release the first truck-load of rocks for its construction. On 19th of September after inaugurating the newly-completed Prince Alfred’s jetty he embarked on the Euryalus for the journey back to England via St. Helena, Ascension, Sierra Leone and The Azores.
A full account of his one-day visit to St. Helena is described in: “The progress of His Royal Highness Prince Alfred Ernest Albert through the Cape Colony, Kaffraria, the Orange Free State and Port Natal in the year 1860”. Published by Saul Solomon & Co. 1861 it is available to download at books.google.co.uk and edited extracts are given below
Saul Solomon was born on St Helena in 1817, left for South Africa with his family about 1830, and later became an MP for Cape Town and founder of The Cape Argus. His memorial is in St James’ Church, Jamestown.
Ten days after leaving Cape Town day the bold, cloud-capped peak of the island was descried on the horizon, and by eleven a.m. the Euryalus made her way into James' Town harbour. The bustling, loyal Saint Helena men were for once in their lives taken fairly by complete surprise. They had been expecting the Prince, indeed, for weeks before, but an arrival of a few days previous assured them that His Royal Highness could not possibly be there for some time to come. His Excellency the Governor was now at Plantation House, a few miles distant, and the Colonial Secretary, as his representative, proceeded on board to receive the Prince, to suggest that the landing should be delayed a little longer than had been contemplated, and to tender, in His Excellency's name, the services of Lieutenant-Colonel Knipe, Colonial Aide-de-camp, Captain Peile, Royal Artillery, and Captain Tayler, Saint Helena Regiment, as Aides-de-camp to His Royal Highness during his stay on the island. The Prince cordially accepted the proffered loyal compliment, though, as the time at his disposal for witnessing the "lions" of the place was to be brief, he preferred disembarking immediately. But in the short interval which did elapse since it was known that the frigate in the roads was Her Majesty's steamer Euryalus the aspect of the town was completely transformed as if by sudden magic. The flags and banners, bearing their appropriate mottoes, prepared so long in advance and afterwards laid aside in reserve, were now brought forth and over the head school of the Island appeared, in conspicuous characters, the graceful, simple salutation, "SALVE "FILI VICTORIA."
As the Prince's boat reached the wharf, where a great crowd of the inhabitants had assembled, and where the Saint Helena Regiment were mustered as a guard of honour, His Royal Highness was received by the Chief Justice and the principal officers of the Government and the garrison; a thundering salute was fired from the battery of the precipitous Ladder Hill; and having entered the Netherlands Consul's carriage, which was placed there at his disposal, the Prince proceeded onwards to the city, meeting on his route the Volunteer Rifle Company with presented arms, and hailed by enthusiastic cheers from the concourse of people. When near the drawbridge he was met by the Governor, Sir E Drummond-Hay, the Bishop, Dr. Claughton, and His Excellency's Aide-de-camp, Lieutenant-Colonel Knipe. Without waiting for the horses to be properly halted His "Royal Highness with one bound vaulted out of the carriage and shook hands with the Governor in the most cordial manner, and after a little talk they both stepped again into the vehicle and proceeded to the Castle. The sanctioned stay in Saint Helena was limited to that one day, and it was, therefore, of course determined to make the most of it with the least possible waste of time. Accordingly, within a few minutes after the arrival at the Castle a levee was announced, at which His Excellency the Governor presented the officers of the Civil Government and of the Volunteer Rifles, as well as the inhabitants; after which, again, Lieutenant Colonel Beatty, Ro
