Hear about Victoria’s fight for freedom, identity and power from the people who knew her best

As a princess, Victoria enjoyed a very comfortable lifestyle, surrounded by a small circle of loyal friends and family.

However, as an adult she frequently revisited events in her childhood, recounting that she had an isolated and unhappy upbringing.

Explore Kensington Palace and meet the people who influenced her most - a devoted mother, ambitious guardian and teenage Albert.

If you were in Victoria's shoes, would you agree with her?
