Getting into Character

Queen Victoria's diaries

Are you an actor getting into character for a play set in the Victorian age?

Queen Victoria's personal journals are now available digitally.  BBC news item here.  (A nice, Royal story appropriate for the Jubilee!)
'We kissed each'
The intimate side of the queen is revealed through an entry after her marriage to Prince Albert in February 1840.  She wrote of her new husband: "He clasped me in his arms, and we kissed each other again and again!
"Oh! was ever woman so blessed as I am."
