Succeeding William IV in 1837, Victoria reigned for nearly sixty-four years and was always a keen chronicler of life around her, through both her paintings and the detailed diary she kept from the age of thirteen. Queen Victoria’s Highland Journals cover the period from 1848 to 1882 and provide a fascinating insight into those long “never to be forgotten days” she spent with her family in her much beloved Scottish Highlands. Published privately for her family and a few close friends, the Queen was persuaded by a close relative to reissue the journal for the pleasure of her subjects where it became an immediate bestseller. The Highland Journals are gentle and unpretentious with a fascinating attention to detail, giving the listener a rare opportunity to hear the thoughts and reflections of the wife and mother who wore the Imperial Crown.
