208 ratings | 68697 views
'Young Victoria' the film starring Emily Blunt, Miranda Richardson and Rupert Friend is released in UK cinemas on the 6th March 2009. It tells the story of Queen Victoria's "early rise to power". Victoria's actual childhood was spent at Kensington Palace, having been born there in 1819, in the room now known as the North Drawing Room. It was at Kensington she learnt that her uncle had died and she was now queen. Victoria, aged just 18 years, held her accession Privy Council in the Red Saloon. She even met a young Albert in the palace - four years before she eventually married him! In this film, Historic Royal Palaces Chief Curator, Lucy Worsley tells the story of the young Victoria in the place it really happened.

ah! I totally understand! I'm from Canada myself, but now I work at the palace. The exhibition is a new permanent one, the dresses may change because of conservation, but hopefully they'll be on display long enough for you to see them!

Thanks for the info. Would love to see it but no budget for a trans-atlantic trip this year. If I win a lottery I'll pop over. Sounds like a fantastic exhibition !

PrincessKLS her mother wanted to rule as regent so she separated her from her paternal family and as a widow in a loveless marriage (she was about 30 and her dad was 50) she didn’t get a big pension.

Fantastic to see the real dress. Wish this was longer. Visited Kensington in 2004 on Victoria Day. We had lunch in the "Orangerie" and toasted Victoria. Amazingly feisty and assertive considering the age she lived in and her upbringing. Great love story, too.
