Queen Victoria’s Letters: A Monarch Unveiled

This is the story of Queen Victoria as never told before; a psychological insight into Queen Victoria through her own words and her experiences recounted solely through her personal diaries and letters. Britain’s longest­‐reigning monarch wrote on average 2,500 words a day every day of her adult life. Biographer A N Wilson explores the personal life of Queen Victoria through her journals and letters, examining the monarch’s closest relationships in the four decades following Prince Albert’s death to chart how her life changed. He looks at her controversial friendship with her servant John Brown and her unconventional behaviour around Indian waiter Abdul Karim, and also reveals how she gained greater freedom in her widowhood.
