- Queen Victoria
Queen Victoria was visiting a town in Northern England to open a new hospital.
The town mayor made an announcement that in honour of the occasion, the town would name a road after the Queen.
The first road that was suggested was a residential road, and the suggested name was "Victoria Mews". Sadly, the Queen didn't like the idea of giving her name to that road.
As she said, "We are happy to be a city-center street, but we are not a Mews!"
