Victoria and Albert at Osborne

Last week, English Heritage hosted a fabulous conference (November 6-8) at Osborne House on the Isle of Wight.  Let's just say I would have enjoyed this conference immensely.  A dear friend, Katrina Warne did go to the conference.  The attendees had Osborne to themselves.

"It was an extremely interesting conference which featured a variety on papers on different aspects of the lives of Victoria, Albert & their family at Osborne. The speakers came from English Heritage, The Royal Collection & Historic Royal Palaces amongst other authoritative speakers.  The conference was held in the Durbar Room of the house. The food served at the meals was food that Queen Victoria would have recognised as she had eaten it herself at various stages of her life. There were tours of the house & garden. It is hoped that at some point the papers given will be published."

I have a pdf for the actual program, but cannot get it to be a link so here is a link to the draft program, which will give some information about the presentations.  I wish I could have popped over to Osborne
