Victoria: A Royal ChildhoodRunning concurrently with Victoria: Woman and Crown, Victoria: A Royal Childhood is one of two exhibitions being held by Kensington Palace to mark the 200th anniversary of Queen Victoria's birth. Held in the very rooms where Victoria was born, grew up and experienced her primitive years as monarch, this new permanent display explores her early years. Items such as a poignant scrapbook of mementos created by her German governess, Baroness Lehzen, will show how a young princess developed into the independent and iconic head of state that we remember today.
