Neither is it a direct quote from Queen Victoria, but rather a letter King Leopold of Belgium wrote to Queen Victoria in 1845, "The dealings with artists, for instance, require great prudence; they are acquainted with all classes of society, and for that very reason dangerous;…" I still love this quote.
The article is from Artlog here and the letter from King Leopold here.
