Kensington Palace - Celebrating Queen Victoria

To mark the bicentenary of Queen Victoria's birth, Historic Royal Palaces is re-presenting the rooms at London's Kensington Palace, that were the home of the young princess Victoria. 

In Victoria: A Royal Childhood,  visitors will follow the Princess's journey to the crown experiencing how an idyllic childhood became governed by the strict rules of what has become known as the Kensington System and how Victoria escaped isolation and family feuding by creating a fantasy world of story writing, doll making, and drawing inspired by her love of opera and ballet.  In the Pigott Gallery - the temporary exhibition area at the Palace - Victoria: Woman and Crown, will consider the private woman behind the public monarch. 

It will consider how she balanced the role of wife and mother with that of being Queen of an expanding empire, and it will re-examine her later life and her cultural legacy assessing her impact on world affairs much of which is still felt today.  Rare survivals from Victoria's private wardrobe will go on display for the first time - including a simple cotton petticoat dating to around 1840.
