Queen Victoria: A life in moments
Queen Victoria was as complex a woman as she was an iconic monarch. In this unique look at the queen’s life, Lucy Worsley focuses on the roles that Victoria inhabited: a daughter destined for power, a loving but tempestuous wife, a controlling mother, and a cunning widow―all while wearing the royal crown.
Drawing from the vast collection of Victoria’s correspondence, Worsley recreates twenty-four of the most important days in her life, including her parents’ wedding, the day she met Albert, her own wedding day, a Windsor Christmas, the death of Prince Albert, and many more. Each day gives a glimpse into the identity of this powerful, difficult queen as a wife and widow, mother and matriarch, and above all, a woman of her time.
