Queen Victoria as we’ve never seen her before

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

For many, the enduring image of Queen Victoria is of a monarch in mourning, stern-faced and bereft in her black gown and white headpiece after the death of her beloved husband, Albert.

Very few pictures capture the young, vibrant woman she had been – when she ascended the throne in 1837, aged 18, photography had barely been invented. But such images do exist, and to mark the 200th anniversary of her birth this Friday, the Museum of London has unveiled exclusively for theObserver two rare photographs never before seen by the public.

I don't see a vibrant young woman in those pictures.  She still looks like a sour puss ^_^ But, still, cool to see such old images.

High-quality film of Queen Victoria on her last trip to Ireland has been rediscovered.

The footage was taken a year before she died.

The monarch can be seen smiling and nodding. We can even see that she's wearing sunglasses.
