Although originally published for private circulation among family and friends, the Queen gave her consent to publish this volume so that all who read it would "tend to a better and higher appreciation of (Prince Albert's) great character…" and would sympathize with "the free and unreserved expression…of her own feelings, as well as of those of the Prince…" This volume, through letters and memoranda, traces the development of Albert from an intelligent, kind and gentle boy to the intellectual and moral compass of a country. "Few men who have ever lived…could have possessed a mind so many-sided with such corresponding political and social influence." His greatest strength was "the moral power of character, the power of intellectual culture, of extensive knowledge, of earnest thought; the power of the sagacious statesman, of the single-minded good man; that power which discerns, interprets, and guides the wants and the spirit of the age…"
