Launching next week: Queen Victoria season at Royal Central

To celebrate the bi-centenary of Queen Victoria’s birth in 1819, Royal Central will be republishing some of our most popular posts of the past six years relating to one of Britain’s most loved historical figures.

From looking at her early childhood to her marriage to Prince Albert, we will be bringing you features looking at all aspects of Victoria’s life.

Royal Central’s Desk Editor Lydia Starbuck said: “The 200th anniversary of Victoria’s birth is a major royal anniversary. It’s a chance to reflect on a life that transformed the Monarchy and left its mark on every aspect of life in Britain.

“From the start of her reign, Victoria had a very firm idea of who she was and what she wanted her rule to represent.

“The bicentenary of her birth is a chance to reflect on everything she achieved”.
