Breaking News

A portrait of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, part of the Royal Collection, has been moved in preparation for an exhibition showcasing the Royal couple's love for art.

The exhibition, including more than 400 items from the Royal Collection, aims to challenge the image of Victoria as a melancholy widow, revealing her as a passionate young woman.

The exhibition will celebrate ''one of history's great love stories'' and reflect the royal couple's mutual delight in collecting and showing off artworks.

Around a third of the objects in the exhibition were exchanged as gifts between the pair. They were regular visitors to the annual Royal Academy exhibition and frequently made purchases.
