To the Jubilee

The longest-reigning British monarch, Queen Victoria celebrated her Golden Jubilee on June 20 and 21, 1887, marking 50 years of her reign.  Fifty foreign kings and princes, along with the governing heads of Britain's overseas colonies and dominions, attended.  Queen Kapiʻolani and an entourage represented Hawaiʻi.

They first stopped in San Francisco for a week; then, a special train of three cars took them across the US, making several stops along the way.  Queen Kapiʻolani, met with President and Mrs Cleveland, the first Queen to cross the White House threshold.  After a few days in New York City, Queen Kapiʻolani and her entourage departed for England, where they attended the Queen’s Jubilee.
