A new exhibition at the Château de Versailles concentrates on the connection between Louis-Philippe and the palace, as well as his relationship with Queen Victoria and her family. Louis-Philippe, Duc of Orleans and French King from 1830 until 1848 was responsible for the transformation of Versailles into a museum of French history and welcomed Queen Victoria to the Château d'Eu in 1845. Loans from the Royal Collection to this exhibition include watercolours depicting Queen Victoria's visits to Louis-Philippe in France and miniatures of Louis-Philippe and his consort Marie-Amélie.
