2019 marks two hundred years since the birth of both Queen Victoria and that of her husband Prince Albert. Queen Victoria’s reign was the second longest in British royal history and through the Victorian era she ruled over a country and empire that saw tremendous social, political and economic upheaval. This beautifully illustrated Queen Victoria Bicentenary Miniature Sheet MZ141 forms just part of the range marking this anniversary.
The elegant Queen Victoria Bicentenary Miniature Sheet looks at the legacy of Prince Albert. A true patron of the arts, Prince Albert had a wide-ranging taste in art, science and music. His work on the Great Exhibition helped set a tone for Victorian Britain’s excellence in arts and manufacturing. He championed the campaign against slavery and strived to improve workers’ rights. He had a hand in many projects including the Victoria and Albert Museum. And even the rebuilding of the Houses of Parliament. So many of his visionary ideas came to pass even after his death such as the Royal Albert Hall that the area of South Kensington became known as Albertopolis.
