Kensington Palace, London
Explore the birthplace and intimate childhood home of Queen Victoria and home to young royals for over 300 years. Walk in the footsteps of royalty in the King’s State Apartments, the beautiful Queen’s Apartments and the famous Sunken Garden.
Learn about Queen Victoria’s long and extraordinary life in her own words at the Victoria Revealed exhibition at Kensington Palace, London. Inspired by the Queen’s own journals and featuring displays of personal objects in the rooms where she once lived, this exhibition gives an intimate account of Queen Victoria’s fascinating life.
Princess Victoria was born on 24 May 1819 at Kensington Palace where she grew up alone with her mother, the Duchess of Kent, and spent what she would later recall as a lonely and unhappy childhood.
The definitive Queen Victoria exhibition
Victoria Revealed explores the many, often surprising aspects of Queen Victoria’s character: devoted wife, dedicated mother, lover of the arts, devastated widow and powerful stateswoman, with a reign spanning 63 years.
The exhibition is comprised of more than 300 magnificent items from Historic Royal Palaces’ own collections and 11 British lenders. Comprising a magnificent diamond and emerald tiara, emerald necklace, earrings and brooch, this matching suite of jewels showcases both the exquisite workmanship of nineteenth century goldsmiths, and Prince Albert’s own flair for design.
It includes iconic, beautiful and deeply personal objects: from the dolls Victoria made as a little girl to a stunning pink Ottoman embroidered jacket, showcasing her crucial role as a diplomat.
Also featured are paintings, photography and sculptures by Victoria’s favourite artists, including Sir George Hayter, Franz Xaver Winterhalter and Sir Edwin Landseer.
You will also gain insight into the life of Prince Albert, the love of Victoria’s life. Here he is revealed to be a passionate, moral individual who was deeply involved in the life of the nation.
