Perhaps if there is one Victorian love story that comes to mind, it is that of its namesake.
Young Victoria truly succeeded in ruling her people once Prince Albert became her consort. With his partnership, Victoria came to trust her instincts over the flawed advice from Lord Melbourne. Together, the royal couple held each other’s hearts, and their English subjects’.
Testimonies, letters, and the monarch’s diary document their affection from courtship to Albert’s death. But they weren’t the only Victorians to marry happily.
Even the queen herself is speculated to have found love again.
