About the Book

Using excerpts from letters and diaries written by Victoria over many decades, this book shows her very human side, from spirited young princess to caring Queen, passionate bride and loving mother to great-grandmother of a royal dynasty.

Book Synopsis

Photographs of Queen Victoria most often show a plump Empress wearing widow's black: serious and regal. In reality, the character of Alexandrina Victoria, Queen of Great Britain and Ireland, and latterly in her long reign, Empress of India, is rather different. In private, Victoria had a reputation for being fun-loving and entertaining. Victoria kept a daily journal from the age of 13, which by the time of her death ran to 122 volumes. She reveals herself to be emotional and honest about her own feelings and experiences, as well as her opinions of other people. This book shows Victoria at her most human, whether enthusing over her hobbies and interests, delighting in her children and grandchildren, commenting on the 10 different Prime Ministers who served during her reign, or sharing her love for her husband--her dearest, dearest Albert.
