Favorite thing: This white marble monument standing in pride of place right outside Buckingham Palace is commonly called "The Wedding Cake.
It was built in 1911 to honor Queen Victoria who died 10 years earlier. As well as the 13 feet high statue of Victoria there are figures representing Charity, Courage, Truth and Justice. The gold figure at the top of the monument represents Victory. -


Este monumento, de mármol blanco, se erige justo enfrente de la entrada principal del palacio y es comunmente llamado "La torta de bodas".-
Fue construído en 1911 en honor a la Reina Victoria quién murió diez años antes. Aparte de la estatua de Victoria, se encuentran talladas figuras que representan la Caridad, el Coraje, la Verdad y la Justicia. La figura de oro que se encuentra en lo alto del monumento representa la Victoria
