This is the story of Queen Victoria as never heard before; a psychological insight of the woman told through her own words, her experiences recounted solely through her personal diaries and letters. Told by writer AN Wilson who has recently released a new biography of Queen Victoria, this is the story of a woman who felt the need to create a personal myth around her upbringing and her relationship with Prince Albert. For the first time we will learn the significance of the Queen’s relationship with her mother. We think we know so much about Victoria and her age but now, for the first time, we hear directly from the Queen’s own voice – through her pen in a raw, unmediated account of her life. We gain new insight into the mind of the woman behind the image, a woman so desperate to communicate through writing. Never before, or since for that matter, has a monarch been so keen to express themselves through the written word.
