Victoria & Albert: The Royal Wedding

In a new documentary, my favourite historian, Lucy Worsley, restages the Wedding of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in 1840, detailing how the event saved the monarchy and invented modern marriage. Aided by a team of experts, including food historian Annie Gray, clothing expert Harriet Waterhouse and military historian Jasdeep Singh, Lucy recreates the most important elements of the ceremony and the celebrations, scouring history books, archives, newspapers and Queen Victoria’s diaries for the details, and reveals how this one extraordinary event helped to invent modern marriage.
