Join Oliver Everett, Librarian Emeritus of the Royal Library, Windsor Castle, as he explores the couple's love for the arts, commissioning and collecting works from both British and European artists. These included Old Master paintings, sculpture, furniture, jewellery and fine bindings. The talk will also challenge the popular image of Queen Victoria as a widow and reveal her passionate and open-minded nature.
