Queen Victoria died on January 22, 1901, at Osborne House on the Isle of Wight. Her reign of nearly sixty-four years ended as the longest in British history. At her funeral, she wore a white dress and her wedding veil along with military regalia of the Order of the Garter. Honoring her instructions before she died, London was bedecked in purple and white, rather than the traditional black. She was buried at Windsor Castle alongside Prince Albert, in a mausoleum which she had built for them. Above the door of the tomb are the words Victoria had inscribed before her death: "Farewell best beloved, here at last I shall rest with thee, with thee in Christ I shall rise again."
