Details

Victoria and Albert have one of the most famous marriages in history, one often seen through the lens of Victoria’s excessive grief after Albert’s death. But was everything as it appears in hindsight? And was Victoria’s ultra-widowhood born of grief or guilt? Join Daisy Goodwin, writer of the highly popular ITV historical drama Victoria, in this compelling talk that uses research from our archives to reveal the truth of their relationship.
