Emperor of India?

"Britain's Queen Victoria" (Frontispiece) - 1901 - by Thomas Paul.
Today is April 28; the day in 1876 when Queen Victoria was declared Empress of India. In today's political jargon, it would be termed as unilateral declaration contravening the UN Charter. I wonder whether the Indians welcome the event with open arms (pun intended). How about an apology? Fat hope!
