Publisher's Summary

The official companion to ITV's hotly anticipated new drama, The Victoria Letters delves into the private writings of the young Queen Victoria, painting a vivid picture of the personal life of one of England's greatest monarchs.
From the producers of Poldark and Endeavour, ITV's Victoria follows the early years of the young Queen's reign, based closely on Victoria's own letters and journals. Now explore this extensive collection in greater depth, and discover who Victoria really was behind her upright public persona.
At only 18 years old, Victoria ascended the throne as a rebellious teenager and gradually grew to become one of the most memorable, unshakeable and powerful women in history. The extensive writings she left behind document this personal journey and show how she triumphed over scandal and corruption. Created by internationally best-selling author, historian of 12 books and Victoria historical consultant, Helen Rappaport, and including a foreword by Daisy Goodwin - acclaimed novelist and scriptwriter of the series - The Victoria Letters details the history behind the show.
Revealing Victoria's own thoughts about the love interests, family dramas and court scandals during her early reign, it also delves into the running of the royal household, the upstairs-downstairs relationships, and what it was like to live in Victorian England. Come behind the palace doors and discover the girl behind the Queen.

If you want more info on the TV series read this!!

i loved the TV series of Victoria and i have become very interested in all that she done. Queen victoria has become a real hero of mine lately and i highly admire her.
This book gives some more insight into what victoria as a person was really like and how they that haven victoria's own words and put her on screen.
The only bit i miss from getting this as an audio book rather than an actual book is that i miss out on the pictures of the behind the scenes
it is a little frustrating when they keep given the name of the person who reads a small passage from victoria or alberts life. It could have been left to the end really however it is a good listen if you are a fan of Victoria.
