A high tea at Oamaru's Brydone Hotel on Saturday marked the 200th anniversary of the birth of Queen Victoria.

While Victoria was born on May 24, 1819, Oamaruvians and their guests celebrated on May 25 in order to mark the anniversary as it occurred at her birthplace, Kensington Palace, in London, because New Zealand is 11 hours ahead of the United Kingdom.
