Queen Victoria: a little old lady, spherical in shape, dressed in black, perpetually grumpy.

Right?

Historian Lucy Worsley wants to make you think again.

Meet a complex, contradictory woman, who had a traumatic childhood, who loved dancing, who suffered calamity and bereavement, before coming out the other side as an eccentric, powerful and really rather magnificent old lady.

Lucy’s illustrated talk takes you into the life, the palaces, and the rich colourful age of this woman who ruled a quarter of the globe.
