Queen Victoria’s throne speech opened the 1876 parliamentary session. Delivered for her by the Lord Chancellor, it addressed the Crown’s numerous foreign affairs. She acknowledged gaining full rule of India and affirmed her commitment to ending slavery in British colonies. At the close of the speech, she gave a blessing for the session: “I pray that your deliberations may, under the Divine blessing, result in the happiness and contentment of my people.”
