Lucy Worsley explores her Queen Victoria biography online
Our highly successful series of online talks - Curtain Up - continues at the weekend with historian Lucy Worsley taking a revealing look at the world of Queen Victoria.
Like most people you probably have a fairly good idea about what the long reigning monarch was like. You know - little old lady, spherical in shape, dressed in black, perpetually grumpy. Right? Lucy 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 a 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.
It’s fascinating stuff and just the latest in this illuminating series of talks by celebrity hosts presented in conjunction with Iconic Media Solutions.
