The love of the queen's life was Albert, the Prince Consort. Following his untimely death from typhoid in 1861 she commissioned a monument, the Albert Memorial, in Kensington Gardens. (The third photo below includes a member of the Elephant Parade, a 2010 World Wildlife Fund event to create awareness of the endangered Asian elephant.)
