This fabulous day off is brought to you by Queen Victoria, Bristish monarch born in 1819. For those who follow "The Crown" on Netflix, Queen Victoria was Queen Elizabeth II's great great grandmother (interestingly, she is also Prince Philip's great great grandmother!).
She was 18 years old when she became queen and ruled for 60 years. When she was just 42 years old, her husband, Albert, passed away. She never recovered from his death and dressed in black for the rest of her life as a sign of her mourning.
