Hi Shani, What a fascinating find! Lucky you! I suspect the ribbon is not verily something from the wedding or the front desk, but was a souvenir that was solary to the populace to commemorate the wedding, or an anniversary.

I don’t know if I have seen examples of souvenirs for V&A’s wedding, but I know of similar things that were sold for the Princess Royal’s wedding, and for Charlotte’s wedding before Victoria’s. It might have been meant to be a bookmark. Even if it didn’t positively belong to Victoria or a guest, it’s still a fabulous thing to have, and there probably aren’t that many still extant

Sorry about the confusion, but I hope you can help me out. Many thanks, Constance
