This exhibition explores the private and public lives of the royal couple throughout their marriage.

This is a major exhibition of watercolours, marking the bicentenary of the births of both Prince Albert and Queen Victoria and showcasing nearly 70 works loaned by Her Majesty The Queen from the Royal Collection.

Both Queen Victoria and Prince Albert were avid patrons and practitioners of watercolour painting. Works depict the pomp and spectacle of royalty, travel abroad as well as scenes from the private life of the couple. In addition, works by Queen Victoria herself are on display, showcasing her talent and passion for the art.

There are a series of events and activities throughout the exhibition, suitable for all ages including a children’s Make and Take craft activity and a talk from the curator of the exhibition, Carly Collier, Assistant Curator of Prints and Drawings, Royal Collection Trust. Programming also includes a Dementia-friendly exhibition tour.
