Producer WALTER WALLICH
After Prince Albert's death in 1861 the popular image of Queen Victoria was that of the Widow of Windsor, unsmiling, unseen and for many years apparently withdrawn into her grief. In fact, particularly towards the end of her life, she frequently took great delight in a wide variety of entertainment.
Queen Victoria's last Master of the Household was Lord Edward PelhamClinton who was not only instrumental in arranging this entertainment but faithfully preserved a mass of detail about it.
Derek Parker introduces, with the help of recordings made by the artists who appeared before the Queen, and extracts from her diary and the Pelham Clinton collection, a picture of those occasions at Windsor and Osborne.
