Are you a history buff, an anglophile, or a royal watcher? You may be interested in perusing the digitized journals of Queen Victoria, which are being made freely available for a limited time. They cover her life since she was 13. Several of the journals are in her handwriting, though most were transcribed by her daughter Princess Beatrice. Keyword searching of the journal entries right now is possible only for the period from Queen Victoria’s first diary entry in July 1832 to her marriage to Prince Albert in February 1840. You can read more about the digitization project and the different versions of the journals online. The site does not provide the cutoff date for the free access, so better look them over now!
