But is there any independent proof that that group of Indian princes
visited London to attend the first great International Exhibition as
described by HPB in 1851, or even that there was such an Exhibition?
She might have got the year wrong, and Leadbeater might therefore
have seen the Master Morya in 1858, or maybe it was at another
Exhibition, or on some other occasion. A child of four mightn't have
been too clear about such details.
Are there any reports of these Hindu princes visiting London for some
International Exhibition in 1851 or some other year in contemporary
newspapers, for instance?

But note that the Master confirmed the incident, but did not confirm
the actual year it happened,only that it happened.
