Who said this?

Who said this when she heard that two of her grandsons might be joining the Royal Navy?

"Will a nautical education not engender and encourage national prejudices and make them think that their own Country is superior to any other?  With the greatest love for and pride of one's own Country, a Prince, and especially one who is some day to be its Ruler, should not be imbued with the prejudices and peculiarities of his own Country...."

Please comment with your best guess.

I'll post the answer in a day or two 


  1. HRH Queen Elizabeth the 1st? (quite an achievement for a virgin, but then she was British don't you know!!)

    My best guess would be HRH Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother?

  2. or perhaps Victoria
