This review is from: Queen Victoria and the Discovery of the Riviera (Paperback)
I am surprised more hasn't been written about this lovely book, which is filled with beautiful details and descriptions. The most moving part for me was the chapter covering the death of Prince Leopold at Cannes and the extracts from Queen Victoria's letters, touching on that.
The book is quite unique in that really portrays Queen Victoria 'in holiday mode' rather than the comnon image of her, unsmiling and unamused. After reading it, I had a burning desire to follow the same routes that the Queen took...A really lovely read!!
