Meet our curators as they share with you some of the finest books from the Royal Library that held special meaning for Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. The couple shared a love of literature throughout their marriage, formed friendships with famous authors and created books to record their moments together. 

Our experts will be positioned throughout the State Apartments and St George's Chapel, together with craftspeople from the Royal Bindery who will use Victorian bookbinding tools to demonstrate how these beautiful books were made.  

Part of our bicentenary celebrations for the births of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.
