The Eternal Mother? Edward VII


To the Archbishop of Canterbury after the service of celebration at St Paul’s for Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee in 1897:

I have no objection whatsoever to the notion of the Eternal Father, but every objection to the concept of an eternal mother.

Edward VII 1841-1910
