Sultan Abdülaziz of Turkey had begun an unprecedented European tour in France, visiting Emperor Napoleon and attending the Paris Exhibition.  He crossed the English Channel and was welcomed at Dover by the Prince of Wales. He was to remain in England for ten days, was hosted at a State Dinner at Windsor Castle, and reviewed the British Home Fleet at its base in Portsmouth.  (By John Osborne)
