Her Majesty The Queen will visit the Queen Victoria’s Palace exhibition at Buckingham Palace
Wednesday, 17th July 2019
Her Majesty The Queen will visit the Queen Victoria’s Palace exhibition at this year’s Summer Opening of the State Rooms at Buckingham Palace on Wednesday, 17th July.
This special exhibition tells the story of Queen Victoria’s life at Buckingham Palace in the year marking the 200th anniversary of her birth.
Visitors will have the opportunity to learn how Queen Victoria shaped the Palace through objects from the Royal Collection. There will also be an immersive experience in the Ballroom transforming it back to how Victoria and Albert would have known it. Projections will return the room to its original decorative scheme, and, through the use of a Victorian illusion technique known as Pepper’s Ghost, a waltz danced at the Crimean Ball of 1856 will be seen.
Key items on display will include Queen Victoria’s Supertunica robe worn for her Coronation in 1838, her costume for the Stuart Ball of 1851 and pages from her illustrated Journals.
Her Majesty will be accompanied on the visit by Tim Knox, Director of the Royal Collection, and will meet key individuals involved in the exhibition.
