  • When Queen Adelaide (William IV's widow and Queen Victoria's aunt) arrived in Malta for the winter of 1838-9, she was "definitely not pleased" to find facilities for Protestant worship there so inadequate (Grech 48). This was largely because the British had been at pains not to offend the strongly Roman Catholic population. But when the dowager queen offered to pay for a church, the government relented and provided a site. [cont. below]
