Queen Victoria and Prince Albert art shown in London





A new exhibition will showcase for the first time the art that Queen Victoria and Prince Albert collected and presented to each other.

The display at Buckingham Palace reveals the couple's enthusiasm for paintings, sculptures and jewellery.

The 400-piece royal collection is expected to "challenge attitudes towards the monarch," its curator said.

Victoria's most glamorous surviving dress, worn at a Buckingham Palace ball in 1851, is part of the exhibition.
