Recreating young Queen Victoria’s rooms at Kensington Palace: CANCELLED @ Jubilee Hall
Apr 28 @ 10:30 am

This talk has now been cancelled.

Talk by Lee Prosser. The rooms where Queen Victoria grew up at Kensington Palace were, until recently just a shadow of their former selves. Research has helped to restore them to Regency splendour for the latest exhibition dedicated to her early life and also tells a different story of her childhood. In the talk Lee will trace that story and explore some of the discoveries.
