Lucy Worsley, Chief Curator at Historic Royal Palaces, tracks a new course through Queen Victoria's life, examining how she transformed from dancing princess to the Widow of Windsor and became one of Britain's greatest monarchs along the way.

Taking 24 significant days from Victoria's life, from her birth, her wedding, her coronation to her husband's death, and many more in-between, Lucy allows us to see Queen Victoria up-close and personal, examining how she lived hour to hour.

Come and hear Lucy talk about this excellent new book in The Pavilion at Kensington Palace.
