Victoria and Albert: The Wedding Lucy Worsley re-stages the wedding of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. Aided by a team of experts, 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. She'll reveal how every moment was brilliantly stage-managed for maximum effect.

Like every good marriage celebration, the series is a heady mix of fine food, fabulous clothes, music, emotion, gossip, and intrigue. From the white dress to the tiered white cake, from the music to the moment rings were exchanged, each element will be carefully researched and remade for a grand staging of the big day itself.

Woven into the recreation of the wedding day is the story of Victoria and Albert's courtship and engagement. Lucy unpacks and explores the hidden iconography and symbolism of this hugely significant wedding, and reveals how this one extraordinary event helped to invent modern marriage.
