Queen Victoria's Matchmaking

The Royal Marriages that Shaped Europe with Deborah Cadbury

2 March 2018

Queen Victoria's Matchmaking

Queen Victoria's Matchmaking

Overview

In the late nineteenth century, Queen Victoria had more than 30 surviving grandchildren. To maintain and increase power in Europe, she hoped to manoeuvre them into dynastic marriages. In her sights was royalty from across the world. Yet for all their seeming obedience, her grandchildren, fuelled by strong wills and romantic hearts, often had plans of their own.

This captivating exploration is by Deborah Cadbury, the author of eight acclaimed books including Seven Wonders of the Industrial World, for which her accompanying BBC series received a BAFTA nomination.

LUNCH: Slow cooked pork belly in a cider sauce; dark chocolate tart; coffee V: Vegetable risotto
